Andrea/Duck Dodgers here. I friendly welcome every fan of animation at my blog. The goal is to support the love and rediscovery of Classic Theatrical Cartoons from the Golden Age of Animation, keeping meanwhile an eye on Golden Age "Funny Animals" Comics as well as on modern animated productions! Every SUPPRESSED ethnic caricature to be sometimes presented here is just for HISTORICAL and EDUCATIONAL purpose and NOT to offend anyone. Stay Tooned and Enjoy the place !

A Sid Marcus moment.

One underrated classic cartoons director is sure Sid Marcus. He directed some funny and well timed entries at Columbia and later at Lantz, where he was even able to direct funny and entertaining stuff starring Chilly Willy.
Here's "Red Riding Hood Rides Again", where Tashlin's influence is pretty clear and strong. The wolf is, of course, voiced by "Big Bad" Billy Bletcher.

By the way, I have, courtesy of Hammerson, many other restored copies of Columbia/Screen Gems/UPA cartoons that were part of the "Totally Tooned In" TV show, which never aired in the States. So I don't think many of you are familiar with such beautiful copies.
Enjoy this, to begin.

See Youse,

Many of the individual cartoons from Totally Tooned In are airing on Animania as part of "The Classics" series. Sometimes the editors mess up and leave the TTI titles in.
