  • BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD: ANIMATED SHORTS - Oct 6

    I just found this TV listing for Animated Shorts with John Canemaker and it looks really great. John is an amazing guy and an animation history genius. His books, Felix, The Twisted Tale of the World's Most Famous Cat, and The Art and Flair of Mary Blair, are among the treasures of my library. Really looking forward to this show.

    OCTOBER 6 on TURNER CLASSIC MOVIES at 8 p.m. Eastern Time

    THIS VERY SPECIAL EVENING of programming features 28 cartoon shorts grouped by respective creators/studios as shown below in boldface, plus four feature-length animated classics. All but one of the shorts are TCM premieres. We celebrate this important aspect of cinema history, which is a world u...nto itself that is often overlooked in the filmic canon.

    The pioneering American cartoonist/animator WINSOR McCAY, beloved for his creation of comic-strip characters and cartoon films, was a great influence in animation, setting a high standard for Disney artists and others who followed. We proudly present 10 McCay shorts including Little Nemo (1911), Gertie the Dinosaur(1914) and The Sinking of the Lusitania (1918). This section of programming is co-hosted by animator/historian/author John Canemaker.

    Bray Studios was founded 100 years ago to become one of the first studios entirely devoted to animation. Studio founder J.R. Bray had produced his first cartoon short, The Artist's Dream. in 1913 and soon was distributing his films through Pathe, Paramount and Goldwyn Pictures, working with such artists and directors as Earl Hurd, Paul Terry and Max Fleischer. Drawn from Bray's popular cartoon series are such entries as Farmer Al Falfa Sees New York (1916), Bobby Bumps' Pup Gets the Flea-Enza (1919) and Colonel Heeza Liar, Detective (1923). Animation curator/collector Thomas Stathes co-hosts.

    VAN BEUREN STUDIOS began in 1920 as the "Aesop's Fables StUdio," founded by Amedee Van Beuren and Paul Terry, coming into its own in 1929 and releasing its cartoons through RKO Studios. Along with animated shorts, the studio's output included live-action films. TCM screenings include The Fly's Bride (1929), an "Aesop's Fable"; A Swiss Trick (1931), featuring Tom and Jerry (not to be confused with MGM's famous cat-and-mouse team); and an animated version of The Wizard of Oz(1933). Animator/ director/historian Steve Stanchfield co-hosts.
