Old/Classic Animation
« on: July 15, 2019, 12:19:56 AM »
I watched a LOT of cartoons on video (VHS) when younger, apparently that was my babysitter  :mad: Anyway, I watched a lot of stuff that's public domain, and only just remembering some of it. Here's some I do remember and HAVE managed to name and track down:

1. Various shorts from the Censored Eleven
2. Very early Tom and Jerry (unsurprising as I watched a LOT of Tom and Jerry)
3. Rankin and Bass' Robinson Crusoe (remembered from the video cover. Has ... QUESTIONABLE lines)
4. Felix shorts, Golden Goose/King Cole (THAT SCARED ME)/Neptune
5. A 1932 short featuring a Puss in Boots character and a giant that could snap his toes like fingers, I forgot the name

I'm trying to remember a very old short that had toys takling part in a football match, but Google isn't helping. I THINK I remember a Betty Boop short, but it's not coming to me easily.

What are some shorts YOU remember?

I had a bunch of Merry Melodies on VHS that I watched a lot when I was a kid. The ones that stick in my mind are a version of The Ugly Duckling with Daffy (I think) and there's no talking, just music. One with some squirrels playing Robin Hood in the forest and a fox that's trying to eat them. Porky Pig in Mexico during a bull fight was one too.

I also had some Mickey Mouse on VHS including one where he tries to kill the pests in his garden only to poison himself and has a dream he's the size of a bug. That was a favorite of mine.

I really hated the classic animations (or at least the VHS tapes that I personally owned), so I don't remember many of them.

but I do remember these, even tho I hated them..
the harvest moon one:

And Jack frost:

and this little lulu thing:

there were some goldenbooks VHS I recall liking...

not animation. not classic. but "baby sitter" reminds me of "videositter"

I loved Tom & Jerry when I was little, I remember I had a double VHS with hours of Tom & Jerry on it and I adored it! I also watched Looney Tunes, I especially remember Sylvester & Tweety Mysteries.

Hope you can ID more of the cartoons you remember. I have loads of vague memories of cartoons and no idea what they were, it's very frustrating!

Oh gosh, I'd always watch a bootlegged tape at my grandmother's that for sure had at least one of the Censored Eleven, as well as a Porky Pig version of Gulliver's Travels (or something very similar) and a short called 'Have You Got Any Castles?', which was sort of a less-PC version of the Daffy Duck short 'Book Revue' that Cartoon Network regularly played around that time. I also had a tape that strangely was sold as a Droopy collection but actually contained 'Hector's Hectic Life' (as someone else mentioned), 'The Stupid-stitious Cat,' and a (maybe Fleischer?) short about leprechauns and gold that I never paid as much attention to.

And this one's sure to be a trip for anyone else who remembers it -- the early Porky Pig one 'Wholly Smoke,' featuring his sidekick Gabby Goat and a shop full of pipes, cigars, etc. that come to life and sing about the dangers of smoking. Shockingly, it actually was on CN now and then in the late 90s/early 2000s. Understandably, most others I've ever seen mention it say it scarred them for life; but I remember finding it hilarious, and the only reasoning I can give for that is that one of my parents must have dropped me as a baby. But I also devoured things like Courage the Cowardly Dog at that age, so maybe to me it was only a slight separation?

I remember an old Betty Boop short where she was in love with an ice-man named Freddy but some gangsters that came into the bar where she was a waitress kidnapped her and Freddy came and saved her. 

I also grew up with a tape that had some Casper shorts and a couple of Little Audrey cartoons and some Gabby cartoons.  I recently found a DVD with some of the Gabby cartoons, including Gulliver's Travels (the one where he sings "All's Well", though he sings the song in other shorts as well).

Fleischer cartoons scare the crap out of me.

I used to watch this every year because we got it on a Disney compilation tape:

I distinctly remembered Santa's laugh and that he had Diddl eyes for some reason XD

I still watch these Russian cartoons today for their great artistry. Of course not the fancy English dub with celeb voices, lol... Kathleen Turner as the Snow Queen!!!

Uh, Warner Bros, Warner Bros, and... Warner Bros. The local UHF station's diet was pretty limited, although we did get Speed Racer and Kimba the White Lion (are they old enough to be "classic"?)

As for real classics, although I didn't see them until they came out on DVD, check out Ub Iwerks. There's a two DVD set called "Cartoon's That Time Forgot" with tons of Flip the Frog. The best is perhaps "Spooks" which we always watch on Halloween.

Fleischer cartoons scare the crap out of me.
:blink: HAHAHAHA!

The Superman series they did is way different, although my ten year old niece could not stand the swooning Lois Lane after three episode or so. "Oh! Superman!" LOL

Rikki Tikki Tavi:
I never seen this one :shocked: THANK YOU!
