As for the shorts, they're a definate treat borderlining from slapstick to the downright bizarre. These cartoons need to be seen to be believed. They're a time capsule from a different era featuring a character that should have been given more of an animated spotlight. They're fun fun fun!
If you're an animation collector, this release belongs in your collection. Avoid the cheapy, VHS-transfered releases and get this one!
You're in for a treat!
Thunderbean has assembled this collection by searching out the best-looking and best-sounding prints from a world-wide network of archives and collectors. It's AMAZING that a collection assembled with this level of care and effort could be had at such a reasonable price!
If you love vintage cartoon rarities, do not fail to seek out this collection.
The cartoons have been selected based on the best available prints (some of the titles here are actually composites from several different prints) to recreate the entire catalog of Van Beuren Sentinel Louey/Little King cartoons - with a bonus Fleischer Betty Boop thrown in for good measure.
Long neglected and virtually forgotten, "The Little King" can stand with the best black and white cartoons of the 1930's. The surrealistic gags and jazz soundtracks bring to mind the work of the Fleischer Brothers Studio.
This title has joined the other DVDs I've ordered from Thunderbean ("Attack of the 1930's Characters," "Cubby the Bear," and "Aesop's Fables"). A "must have" for fans of vintage cartoons!
The Little King's popularity spread from the New Yorker in the '30s to the wider kingdom of the funny papers, where he appeared until Soglow's death in 1975.Read more ›
