Thunderbean presents “On Hold” a collection of cool films from yet-unfinished projects! We thought we’d share these early, since things are quite delayed because of the various shutdowns. The good news is that all of these projects will see the light of day in complete form at some point, but for now, here’s a few sneak peaks.
Two 1/2 hour Linus the Lionhearted episodes: Original episodes of the classic 60s series, with original Post commercials. From B/W negatives made for ABC.
Toby in the Museum (1930): Reconstruction of the first Toby the Pup Cartoon. This is currently the most complete version of the film available.
Grampy’s Indoor Outing (1937) We’re working hard on getting a lot of Boops scanned, but it’s slow going since the pandemic. Here’s one we’ve had scanned already, and we’re including an additional mystery Boop as well. This PD Betty set will eventually have 20 cartoons on it-and we hope to finish it early next year.
Jolly Fish (1932) The Van Beuren Tom and Jerry set is moving right along, and we’re doing as we did with the Cubby Bear set: looking for the best prints we can find and the original titles. This one is one of the ones we haven’t found original titles on as of yet, but we’re looking hard!
The Littlest Giant (1957) This two reel Technicolor ‘Educational’ short by John Sutherland is as you would expect: well designed and animated and with an extra large helping of political messaging!
Lou Bunin’s Rabbit on the Perry Como show (early 50s) : We’ve shown this before on Cartoon Research, but since the rest of the reels from Bunin’s Alice are not yet available, we’ll have this at least on this set if you missed it.
Felix the Cat shorts! From a yet-to-be completed project: Felix at the Fair, Felix Kept on Walking, Arrest Cures (!) and Romeow— plus a mystery short!
B/W and color, BDR Disc.
