“The Kangaroo Kid” (1938) / “Midnight Frolics (1938) / “Pickled Puss (1948)

The Columbia Studios animated cartoons are rarely shown today, and their reputation has been disparaged by numerous animation historians, but that doesn’t mean they have little to offer. The premises and character designs from these films are derivative of the work of other studios. “Kangaroo Kid” might easily be mistaken for an early color Merrie Melodies cartoon, “Midnight Frolics” clearly draws upon Disney’s “Lonesome Ghosts” for its characters, and “Pickled Puss” apes MGM’s Tom & Jerry all the way down to the details of Irv Spence’s animation and posing style. But even if the ideas in these cartoons aren’t original, there’s some excellent animation and background work. An interesting side note is that the direction of “Midnight Frolics” is credited to Ub Iwerks, even if very little of it reflects his personal style. Many thanks to Animation Resources Advisory Board Member, Steve Stanchfield for sharing these three rare films with us.
