THE CARTOON CRYPT: More on Peeping Penguins (1937)


I watched Peeping Penguins on the Fleischer Color Classics compilation dvd Somewhere in Dreamland again this weekend, and I was correct that it is missing footage (in addition to the previously mentioned altered soundtrack missing the song “Curiosity Killed the Cat”). The penguin playing and almost killing himself with a loaded rifle has been eliminated from the sloppily edited version on the Dreamland dvd. You can get the full version on a shoddily manufactured but chock full of great stuff compilation called 150 Cartoon Classics. Or you can just watch it online:

You’ll want Somewhere in Dreamland for the rest of the Color Classics, though (except for the one it doesn’t include)… in spite of its flaws it is a fantastic and almost complete compilation of the Color Classics:

I’ve extracted the song Curiosity Killed the Cat (along with some of the rest of the soundtrack) as an mp3 which you can download here.
