"The Old Shell Game"

Why at Famous they did not release more cartoons with Wolfie is beyond me!
"The Old Shell Game" is the only Famous cartoon where the wolf is the real main character (don't be fooled by the toitle, folks! The star is Wolfie!)and it is also one of the Studio's best efforts.
Enjoy shots from a superior print!
I selected expecially the ones with Wolfie. There are some great poses of him in this picture.












































































Yours,

Duck Dodgers

Dear Duck Dodgers,

I would love to post these wondeful prints on my blog. Instead of screenshots, I post these toons in action via others' YouTube posts. I pick the finest prints avaible on the video-sharing site. Would you post these videos on YouTube? I would apperciate it. Here's my blog (just copy and paste this link):

The only sequence I can I.D. off the top of my head is the turtle playing checkers to being caught with the fishing rod. That's Marty Taras' work.

Thanks Thad-

there are great sequences with Wolfie in these cartoon. Expecially when he walks smiling with the caught turtle or his reactions to the parade of flags and other objects from the turtle's shell.

Hi classic...

I'm trying to obtain original copies of these PD cartoons, but my copies are dubbed in French and I guess these restored copies are someway copyrighted.......
