Cartoon Film Clips

Plane Crazy (Disney 1928)

Produced one year after Charles Lindbergh's transatlantic flight, Mickey Mouse and the whole country went 'plane crazy'.

Steamboat Willie

"My only hope is that we never lose sight of one thing, that it was all started by a mouse."-Walt Disney

This short debuted at the Colony Theater, on November 18, 1928

"Closer than a Brother" Terrytoon with Farmer Gray

From the 1920s by Paul Terry Farmer Al Falfa AKA Farmer Grey Series, with stock music added in the 1950s.

Out Of The Inkwell - Modeling (1921)

A wonderful early entry in Max Fleischer's "Out Of The Inkwell" series featuring Ko Ko the Clown. The combination of cartoon animation and live action is every bit as impressive today as it was when this film was first released 86 years ago.

Hollywood Caricatures 1940

Delightful caricatures of 1940 Hollywood stars can be seen on this color cartoon by Warner Brothers, titled "Hollywood Steps Out". The actors spoofed: Cary Grant, Ann Rand, Johnny Wisemueller, Jimmy Stewart, Bing Crosby, Clark Gable, Oliver Hardy, Ceasar Romero, Mickey Roony, Peter Lorrie, Henry Fonda and a whole slew more.

Cartoons of 1938 Hollywood

A great cartoon with caricatures of the remarkable stars of 1938: Katherine Hepburn, the Marx Brothers, W. C. Fields, Charles Laughton, Spencer Tracy, Laurel et Hardy, Edward G. Robinson, Clark Gable, Fred Astaire, Greta Garbo... and Fats Waller and the great Cab CALLOWAY. Due to those racist stereotypes, this cartoon has been banned. It's been nominated for the Oscars... but it went to Ferdinand the Bull instead.

Krazy Kat: Bugologist

This clip of George Herriman's cartoon, "Krazy Kat: Bugologist" was made in 1916.

A WW I Animated Short Film

A wonderfully stylish black & white animated film titled, "1916"; it has great style and a sad mood. It could have been drawn by Nevinson, however it was made by a young genius named Fabien Bedouel. Highly recommended.

1920's Celebrities Animated

Enjoy the lampooning of Hindenburg, Coolidge, Al Smith and Will Rogers - great caricature work.

Popeye Goes to War

Produced in 1943, during the height of World War II, this is a rare one where Popeye and his ol' nemesis Brutus team-up to kick some serious Axis keister. Tojo, Adolf and Goering are all present when he opens the can.

Popeye vs. Barnacle Bill the Sailor

I don't want to ruin anything for you -but the part of "Barnacle Bill"is played by Brutus.

I'm Popeye

Originally from the 1939 Fleischer film, "Hello, How Am I". The Popeye sub-culture is very keen on this one.


The first episode of Popeye.

Betty Boop & Louis Armstrong - You Rascal You (1932)

One of the classic Depression-era musical cartoons created by Max and Dave Fleischer. Satchmo's soundtrack obviously inspires the artists - even if the visuals aren't in any way "politically correct" 70-plus years later.

Mysterious Mose - Bimbo and Betty Boop

Featuring Bimbo and that character who would soon be called Betty Boop. The Fleischer studio was known for surrealistic animation and this is a fine example. Note how Betty is a human with dog ears in this film. She was gradually changed from a dog to a human over time. Her dog ears would soon become hoop earrings.

Barnacle Bill, Bimbo and Our Own Dear Betty Boop

This is an early Fleischer cartoon from 1930 starring Bimbo and featuring the character who would soon become Betty Boop.

Betty Boop, M.D.

Said to be one of the oddest Betty Boops ever seen. You decide.

Gertie the Dinosaur

Windsor McCay's 1921 dinosaur film.

"The Centaur" by Windsor McCay

The 1921 animated classic in which we learn that centaurs have to deal with that circle of life thing, too.
