A while back, Micheal Sporn posted an article on how color cartoons were made in the 1930’s, which discusses the Ted Esbaugh short “Goofy Goat Antics” (1933), which sadly only exists in B&W dupe form.

The Don Graham lectures held at Disney during the 1930’s and early 1940’s were some of the most comprehensive studies ever committed to animation.

Record Cover

Animation Resources volunteer and resident video guru, Eric Graf has amassed an amazing collection of novelty and children’s records from the 50s and 60s. He brought a stack by the other day to be scanned. Check out how these covers make you want to rush to your phonograph to play the record. Tiny, badly designed CD and DVD covers just don’t have the same impact. Thanks, Eric for sharing these with us!
