Wacky Blackouts

Enjoy this rarely seen WW2 effort by Bob Clampett.
The highlights are the marvellous sequences animated by Scribner.




Best,
Duck Dodgers

Wow! I've never seen "Wacky Blackouts" before, and it sure turned out to be a wartime gem. I loved that Scribner animated scene where Willoughby exclaims, "Blackout!" several times. Good McKimson animation as well.

I remember seeing this cartoon once as a child on Nickelodeon due to the scene with the turkey and the carrier pigeons.

This was a very cool cartoon. The baby bird being taught how to fly reminded me of Tweety.


Best scenes:The baby turtles hatching and the last one is a jeep. The naughty baby woodpecker joyously attacking Old Tom sequences, the poor turtle who doesn't want to go into his shell (silly punchline but cute nevertheless) and that dog screaming "Blackout!"so he can make out with his girlfriend.

The pigeon scene at the end was beautifully patriotic.

Thanks for sharing.

That was great! Thanks for posting it, I hadn't seen this one yet either . I love that little woodpecker.

And the baby bird seems to be an early Tweety indeed. Was that scene animated by McKimson?

Dear Andrea:
I'm preparing a document about banned cartoons (which I hope I'll eventually use on some website).

I wanted to ask you permission about using some stills of Banned 11 from this blog (of course I'll link this website).

Let me know! :-)

Buona serata,
Jacopo

Jacozappa,
I write this in English so my fellow co-bloggers will read it and understand it.

If you want give me your email address or MSN contact. It's always great to know someone in Italy that loves animation.
And, by the way, I'd love to know more about your project.

Of course, the infos you will give me will not be posted on the blog but deleted as soon as I read them.
