Snap Happy

Here I present you, courtesy of Leviathan and The G Man, a great print of one of the best Little Lulu cartoons, "Snap Happy". It includes some wild takes and cartoony violence that were not common in other Lulu entries.

Well, I'll be seein' ya,
Duck Dodgers

The best of the Paramount Lulus are the ones where she’s matched up against a (Jackson Beck-voiced) adult male authority figures, because it allows the staff to up the slapstick violence quotient while still maintaining Lulu’s cuteness. “The Dog Show-Off,” “Bargain Counter Attack,” “Loose on A Caboose” and “Cad and Caddy” are among the others like this (where even the violence-adverse Myron Waldman could feel comfortable working within a more Warner Bros.-like chase-and-violence format).

Warners? This cartoon feels more like MGM to me... specifically an amazingly close riff on Tex Avery's BLOWOUT/DUMB HOUNDED concept. Right down to the wolf/photographer tying up Droopy/Lulu prior to running away from him/her... then riding on a mixture of planes, boats, and animals to escape as quickly as possible!
But a hound makes a better victim than a poor little kid. Watching the photog jump on poor Lulu and "subdue" her just seems six kinds of wrong, even if the overall cartoon is great.

Snap Happy is a good one. I also like the Lulu cartoon Beau-Ties. It also has some really nice exaggerated animation.

no. It's not my intet to upload entire cartoons without a reason. I may post segment from shorts in the future or some complete short because I have to say something about them, but not on demand.

the ending was like a Pinky and the Brain episode, especially the world domination group who likes "The Three Stooges".

This cartoon is very hard to find on either video or DVD.
