Your 1000th Cartoon

ETA, of course I assed this up and set it to post at 6:30 PM, because it's major.


This is my 1000th post! That's most likely more than 1000 cartoons, because my first post was multiple cartoons, and there have been several other entries that contain more than one piece, but 1000! That is SO MANY.

I wasn't sure what to post, until I thought of my first cartoon... ah let us embark in my Way Back Machine (so called because it is in the way-back of a buzzard puke green 1975 AMC Hornet station wagon and any similarity in the name is purely coincidental) and look at the first cartoon I ever posted before I even knew this was going to be A Great Big Amazing Thing, or even a blog:

The Hey Bulldog sequence, from Yellow Submarine. Directed by George Dunning, 1968. Character design by NOT PETER MAX! The wonderful Heinz Edelmann.

So yes! How would you like to see the whole thing?


Off with your pants then, let's watch YELLOW SUBMARINE!!!!!

Tinned Food, Hamm Williams, 2011

all the profits from this film could be spent on illegal meat, if such a product exists.

O makovém koláči (The Poppy Cake) Zdeněk Miler, 1953

Educational film from the 1950s, no subtitles.

Basically, it is the making of a biscuit. That is pretty much what is happening here. Yep. One of those "farm to table" deals, back when that was a much simpler process.

I just got a vision of a contemporary version and suddenly I am not hungry.
