In the mid-1950s theatrical films were being challenged by television. In order to compete, movie studios started producing films that used techniques that television couldn’t imitate- 3D and widescreen in particular. The two films we are sharing with you in this Reference Pack are photographed in Cinemascope, one of the widest aspect ratios ever used. You’ll notice that the animators keep the action in the center of the screen most of the time. This is probably because they knew that these cartoons would eventually be broadcast on television. The irony of that self imposed limitation couldn’t have been lost on them.

It’s rare to see widescreen cartoons in their original aspect ratio. We are fortunate that Animation Resources Advisory Board member, Steve Stanchfield came across these original theatrical prints and transferred them for us. We are sharing them with you in high definition. Please forgive the longer than normal download time.

Animation: Terrytoons’ Catnip Capers

Terrytoons Catnip Capers

Today, we digitized a batch of Terrytoons from the 3/4 inch masters given to me by John Kricfalusi. Among them was a real gem… Catnip Capers (1940).

This cartoon is among the best cartoons TerryToons ever produced. It starts out like a typical Terry cat and mouse cartoon, but before long, it’s gone off on a wild tangent into feline surrealism and exotica.

The backgrounds in this cartoons are spectacular. If anyone out there knows who laid out or painted these, please post to the comments below. There are times where backgrounds and layout are equal in importance to the animation of the characters… a couple of good examples would be the end of Tex Avery’s "King Size Canary" and the St. James Infirmary Blues sequence of "Betty Boop in Snow White". This cartoon certainly fits in that category as well.

Terrytoons have been ufairly criticized as being "monotonous", "predictable" and "boring" in just about every animation history book that references them. Animation Resources has made it a goal to collect and make available as much of the output of the studio as possible to put the lie to those mischaracterizations.
