Vladimir Tytla Celebration- Part 6

Enjoy some shots from a great copy of what is,IMHO, the best cartoon directed by Tytla and also one of Famous best efforts: "The Bored Cuckoo".

Yours Truly,

Duck Dodgers

Hi Andrea, It's Kevin M. (Leviathan on the GAC forums).
I'm sorry I haven't been around.

First off, It's interesting to see such a unique title card example from Famous (Did this cartoon open with the standard Jack-in-the-Box opening? Or does your copy not have a "Noveltoon" card?)

I'll hazard a Guess this is either from the later 40's or 1950 (Because the style of drawing is not dissimilar to the Harvey-owned Noveltoons of the 50's). Also that bit with the female (A Mae West caricature?) bird at the birdbath must be great to see in realtime

The Mae West Character is based on a real person. She is related to the Thomas West, Baron DeLaWarr, (That's we got our name of the state Delaware) and a distant cousin (possibly) of Wesley Matthew Enloe.

After one cartoon, Cuckoo and his wife, "Mae West" bird, got the ax and both have vanished from the face of the Earth!

Actually, Mae West was the extremely distant cousin of Wesley Matthew Enloe.
