The Rare and Unknown : " Big Game Hunt "

Just to start in a good way the new year , I'm going to show some pics from one great Terrytoon , " Big Game Hunt " .

This Farmer Al Falfa's vehicle shows Al Falfa hunting ( or better : trying to hunting ) a vaste number of animals , including a rhynoceros , a tiger , a little monkey as well as a big ape .

Things change fast in life , expecially during big game huntings : in a few time our hero soon becomes the prey of some black stereotyped indigens and , later , of a big lion . Anyway , Al Falfa have seen enough Tarzan movies to know how to conquer the lion's respect and friendship .

Enjoy these pics from this 1937 cartoon !

Yeah, I do. Isn't this one of the last cartoons to feature Farmer Al Falfa, since this cartoon was released so late in his series?

You would also like to know that Farmer Al Falfa is one of the few characters which actually appeared in cartoons made by different studios ( examples are Felix the Cat , Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and Peg Leg Pete ) .

In fact , Al Falfa not only appeared in the Terrytoons cartoons , but was also casted in a few Van Beuren cartoons ( like " Summertime " and " The Iron Man " ) , then Paul Terry claimed the character as his own property and Van Beuren stopped to develope further Farmer Al Falfa's antics .

I read about that Van Beuren problem in "Of Mice and Magic." I've meant that the cartoon was one of the last cartoons on the Farmer's label. He did appeared in some cartoons in the forties, including one that introdeuces a couple of magpies.

the ultimate cannibal cartton ever done was/is 1945 popeye a la mode, popeye shipwrecked on cannibal island, checks into cannibal hotel w/out knowin it, is given a ceremonial bath, but finds out he is in a huge cauldren! he hops out, many cannibals fall upon him, he ends up tied standin on top of a huge trestump, as he tries to hop away, two natives begin to pound him atop his head w/large wooden mallets, he tries to hop off the stump betwen blows to his head, but he is begginning to flatten out from the feet upwards as the pounding continues, finally he is completely flattened into a huge flat thick juicy steak, he is then flung into a huge frying pan, begins sizzling as he is flipped over, juices splattering as he fries, finally the spinach pops outta his steak folds, and into his squshed mouth slot, just before he cooks completely!
this is an utterly hott cartoon as it features popeye valiently struggling against many hands upon him, he is tied anyway by lots of rope, even tho he almost hops away, he is pounded atop his head, stunned, and before he can regain his senses, he is already flattened out into steak form, and flung into a hott frying pan!!!
sexy, hott indeed!
