Fleischer Xmas cards '35

FLeischer Christmas cards; unlike the one I posted last year, I think these are actually from 1935...

Sunday, July 1, 2012


Writing this a month in the past, I see life has waylaid my ability to finish this blog in this year, so I'm declaring a do over (kinda; I just want to say it in my onarch voice). It's possible I could catch up, but I think I'm going to be better off not doing that. See you in a year (that's likely to be controversial with some, as it was when I did it last year; too bad; also \, there will be some interim posts before July 2013; one is already sitting in the December queue); even if I don't write any more ever again, there's still about a month of posts ready to roll. We'll see just how many years I can drag 1935 out through. Kisses.

Directed by
Burt Gillett and Tom Palmer
Music by Winston Sharples
Series: Rainbow Parade
Running time (of viewed version): 7:24
Commercial DVD Availability: TTRP

Synopsis: Destructive children outmaneuver mail robber.

Comments: Those are some red bushy eyebrows on the captain. He wants to make more children with Mrs. Perkins. Is "she's always on time" a joke or a simple reference? Dramatic music. They were still using the style in the Phantom serial in 1943. They don't get tired of the underwear jokes. The Black Parrot Mail Robber has a good attitude. This is clearly not the Foxy Terrier. This is a strongly not funny cartoon. It's unclear why the ribber didn't shoot the captain before he raised the shotgun.
