Cartoon Carnival #92: Odd Stuff
Saturday, 6/20/20 at (TIME TBA)
We're still in lockdown here in New York City, but the show must go on! The Tommy Stathes Cartoon Carnival is up to program #92 this month, and it's being presented in online streaming form, for all the world to enjoy. Every program is a surprise selection of specially curated curiosities, with live hosting, that you'll be sure to enjoy!
For our May program, your head Cartoon Carnie must rely on whatever 16mm prints are laying around at home, since traveling out to off-site storage is much too risky! Thankfully, there are lots of goodies readily on hand. Venture deep into these cluttered studio apartment film stacks with us for nearly two hours fun and rarities, featuring notable 1920s animation icons like Felix the Cat, Bobby Bumps, Farmer Alfalfa, and Koko the Clown, as well as Golden Age superstars including Betty Boop, Porky, Gandy Goose, Willie Whopper, and others. Don't worry—there will be a few fun obscurities thrown in for good measure as well.
Join us in watching Tommy thread up the old 16mm projector for a trip back in time, and rare opportunity to enjoy these classic and now-rare cartoons the way they were meant to be seen—projected on the big screen in 'reel' film form!
Stream begins at TBA (EDT); introduction and films begin roughly TBA. The entire program should last roughly 3 hours.
Also: Please note that each guest buys a ticket at our physical shows, and it is much needed support. If multiple people are viewing the stream with you at home, please consider making a donation in the amount of additional ticket prices for those other viewers over at ko-fi.com/cartoonsonfilm
