This RefPack includes the second volume of cartoons from Esquire. To commemorate its first five years in business, Esquire planned an annual gathering together the best cartoons from 1933 to 1937. The book was never published, but Animation Resources was given access to the only remaining prototype of the book.

Lotte Reiniger Mozart

Also included are two brilliant animated films set to the music of Mozart by Lotte Reiniger. Reiniger’s technique of silhouette animation using jointed paper puppets is rarely used today. But it provides a good model for designing asset based Flash animation.

Three TerryToons

The Reference Pack features three cartoons from the Terry-Toons studio. Animation histories describe Terry cartoons as all looking basically the same, but nothing could be further from the truth. These three cartoons don’t just look different from each other, the style of the animation changes from scene to scene!

Charms B.G.

Beginning this time, we are including a bonus download from one of our earlier RefPacks. This time the bonus is a rare industrial film from the Paul Fennell studios. Titled “Charms B.G.”, this sales film in Technicolor was designed by the legendary layout artist, Ed Benedict.
