From the Fleischer Color Classics series, today we celebrate Somewhere In Dreamland. While this was not the first cartoon in the Color Classics series, it does have the unique distinction of being the first from the series produced in three-strip Technicolor.

Easily the most controversial of all Bob Clampett’s films, Coal Black And De Sebben Dwarfs was never intended to offend, but rather to entertain. What Clampett had intended as a celebration of Black music and culture of his time has turned into a touchstone of racist film making at Warner Bros.

Not a cartoon per se, but one of the most famous animated sequences ever on TV.… the 1966 Batman Opening Titles paved the way for a whole generation of super hero cartoons on television. As a mid-season replacement series, Batman began on ABC on this date in 1966.
Not a whole lot to choose from today, so I decided to go for unusual. The Sunshine Makers is from Van Beuren Studios Rainbow Parade Theatrical Cartoon Series, and while it may not be the most obscure choice I could make, it is certainly not a series many are knowledgeable of.
It’s Oscar time! This morning, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced the nominees for this years Oscars. There are two main areas of competition for animation, the Feature Length and the short awards. This year, the nominees are…
From nearly the end of the theatrical series, The Missing Mouse was unique in a few ways. Popular voice actor Paul Frees– Captain Hook from Disney’s Peter Pan from the same year– handles the voice duties for this short, and therein is one of the unique aspects of the film.
