If you haven't already visited The Huemer Family Web Sight where Dick Huemer's family has generously made available a gorgeous selection of Christmas cards from the 30's as well as artwork from the master himself - shame on you! Go! Go now! Scrappy Holidays!
*addition Dec.20: Mike Barrier has another one from Dave Fleischer (but drawn by a mystery artist) over on his blog - check it out!*
*addition Dec.21: Bob Jaques has also just posted his fantastic card from Eddie Nolan!

The 30's didn't produce too many memorable Christmas cartoons but this is one of the better ones: Gifts From the Air (Columbia Color Rhapsody, 1937). The animation is as choppy as you would expect from a Rhapsody, and the plot is full-on sentimental, but there's something appealing about it to me.
Maybe it's the creepy Santa.
