Animals Love Fink's (and Peanuts)!


Expanding on the frame grab below, the ride-out from the  Screen Song "The Peanut Vendor" (1933, Seymour Kneitel, Tom Johnson). Lots of great Fleischer animals and great Hawaiian version of the title song!

That was really nice! I need to hunt-down a full-length copy of that cartoon.

Click on 'Cartoon Research Garage Sale' in my links. Ask for 'Lost Fleischer Vol.6'. Trust me, the Screen Songs are worth owning!

Yeah. Beck's prices are a bit steep, though I understand that he doesn't enjoy the economies of scale of another publisher, and so I wouldn't claim that they are unreasonably steep.

Part of the cost of the DVD goes into acquiring more prints to transfer. Also, the cost of time it takes to transfer hours and hours of obscure 16mm cartoons (like Van Bueren) that aren't going to have a huge market. It's a good cause.

Thanks so much for digging all this animation and artwork up...infinitely entertaining and inspirational. I'm immersing myself in your blog as we speak.
