Product Details

Editorial Reviews

This collection of films explores the earliest period of animated films. It demonstrates some surprisingly surreal wit to American animation and a full range of early animation techniques. The twenty-one films (and two Winsor McCay fragments) in this collection include clay, puppet, and cut-out animation as well as pen drawings. Beyond their artistic interest, these tiny, often satiric, films tell much about the social fabric of World War I-era America. Here are the animations in this 1 hour 20 minute collection. The Enchanted Drawing; Fun in a Bakery Shop; Humourous Phases of Funny Faces; [Men's Styles] from Keeping Up with the Joneses; [Women's Styles] from Keeping Up with the Joneses; He Resolves Not to Smoke from Dreamy Dud Series; The Phable of a Busted Romance; The Phable of the Phat Woman; Mr. Nobody Holme--He Buys a Jitney; Never Again! The Story of a Speeder Cop; Krazy Kat Goes A-Wooing from Krazy Kat Series; Krazy Kat--Bugologist from Krazy Kat Series; Krazy Kat and Ignatz Mouse at the Circus from Krazy Kat Series; Bobby Bumps Starts a Lodge; Mary & Gretel from Motoy Films Series; The Dinosaur and the Missing Link, A Prehistoric Tragedy; Policy and Pie from Original Katzenjammer Kids Series; W.S.S. Thriftettes; AWOL--All Wrong Old Laddiebuck; Dud Leaves Home from Us Fellers Series; The Centaurs [fragment]; The First Circus from Tony Sarg's Almanac; Gertie on Tour [fragment]
