Shhhh-h-h-h-h-h

Quiet, please! Not a sound!

Don't you think silence is indeed golden?
Well, my friend Tom Sthates certainly does think it.
If you love or like silent animation or you are simply curios, I strongly suggest you to at least try and buy one of his DVD releases. The prices are really affordable and everything is worth the price.
Not only for historical interest. The stuff is real fun!
Who can deny the charm of Felix cartoons? They were marvellous! And Farmer Alfalfa was already a consolidated star before the advent of sound cartoons.

Go check Tom's blog and do yourselves a favor ordering some cartoons. Tell my friend that good ol' "Double D" sent you there and you'll be properly welcomed!!

For a minute there, I thought you were going to talk about Avery's last cartoon.
