A MGM Harman-Ising Happy Harmony. The inspiration for Ghidra, no doubt.
A Harman-Ising MGM cartoon from 1936. As with yesterday’s cartoon, this cartoon is in the genre of anthropomorphic inanimate objects.
Here’s a delightful MGM cartoon directed by Rudolph Ising that has been a frequent request of my daughter’s recently. Featuring The Three Little Kittens from the nursery rhyme. The kittens don’t appear to have been in any other cartoons.
Another great MGM cartoon featuring the Three Good Little Monkeys.
Here is the second MGM cartoon featuring the Three Good Little Monkeys.
A fun MGM Harman-Ising cartoon where Little Cheeser gets inspired by the Sunday funnies.
Here’s a great, silly, musical Harman-Ising MGM cartoon featuring frog caricatures of Cab Calloway, Fats Waller, The Mills Brothers and Louis Armstrong (and others that I can’t identify… if you know, please let me know in the comments).
Warning: This cartoon contains offensive racial caricatures… if this sort of thing offends you, you may not want to watch it.
Here’s one of the two cartoon adaptations of Milt Gross’ Count Screwloose. It isn’t a very good translation of the feel and charm of the comic strip, but it is fun and very well animated. The loony bin is nowhere to be seen. Why they decided to change Iggy’s name to J.R. the Wonder Dog I have no idea… and they stole his funny hat! You can see the other Count Screwloose cartoon, Wanted: No Master (also from 1939), here.
Note that this cartoon contains offensive racial depictions, and if this sort of thing offends you deeply you may not want to watch it.
A great MGM cartoon directed by Hugh Harman I recently discovered via youtube. The devil and the seeno hearno speakno evil monkeys are the stars, so, obviously, you can’t go wrong. Read more about it on the Big Cartoon Database here.
