Here’s a fun VanBeuren cartoon from 1935, about an alchemist’s experiment going terribly awry and releasing demons from Hell! Scientists working on the Large Hadron Collider… heed this cartoon!
A fun 1933 Van Beuren cartoon, with Mae Questel doing a voice for a studio other than Fleischer.
I’ve been enjoying watching this cartoon recently with my daughter. It is a Van Beuren cartoon from 1935 called Picnic Panic directed by Burt Gillett and Tom Palmer. I particularly enjoy the teapot music at the beginning.
I was delighted last night to find a longer version of the beginning of the cartoon on YouTube before it had the beginning truncated by an unscrupulous cartoon bootlegger. See the wonderful original beginning below.
Pretty catchy tune, eh? Download the music as an mp3 here:
UPDATE: Actually looking at the Big Cartoon Database still of the title card, it is different than either of the ones above. So the new footage appears to be a bootleg, and the first one a bootleg of a bootleg. Anyone have the original version online?
