Tuberculosis: You Can Help

Paul Fennell Studios (ca. 1945)

Industrial films are fascinating to study. Their primary purpose was to educate and inform, but they also needed to hold the audience’s interest. Animation provided the perfect balance of function and fun. These films were designed with a very specific audience in mind, and were ephemeral films- after their audience had been reached with the message, the films were no longer needed. For this reason, only a small fraction of the number of industrial films produced over the years survive. Budgets were very low and schedules were short. Dialogue, music and design had to carry the show.

Magazine Cartoons: Jack Davis (1924-2016)

Jack Davis Cartoon

Comics lost one of its greatest caricaturists and draftsmen today… Jack Davis.

Jack Davis Cartoon

Jack Davis was a cartoonist from a very early age. His first published work appeared in Tip Top Comics in 1936. He was twelve years old at the time. In 1949, he packed up and moved from Atlanta to New York City, where he was hired by EC Comics to draw for The Vault of Horror and Two-Fisted Tales. At EC, Davis met Harvey Kurtzman, who liked his work and used him in Mad magazine. Kurtzman and Davis also worked together on Little Annie Fanny in Playboy.

Davis went on to become one of the most sought-after illustrators and caricaturists in America. His caricatures of public figures appeared on the covers of Time magazine and TV Guide, as well as record covers, movie posters and bubble gum cards. Davis is currently one of the best-known and recognizable cartoonists in the world.

Here is an early Davis story from Mad magazine that shows his immense talents at their absolute best. Every panel of this comic is drop-dead brilliant!

UPA (1950s)

Voiced by the comedy team Bob & Ray (Bob Elliott and Ray Goulding), the Piels Beer commercials were produced for Young & Rubicam by UPA in the early 1950s. The commercials, largely animated at the New York offices of UPA by great animators like Grim Natwick, Tissa David, and Lu Guarner, were hugely influential. This reel contains some of the earliest entries in the series, produced before the spots moved from UPA to Terry-Toons.
