Cartoon and animation historian Jerry Beck returns to the Wexner Center to introduce three cartoon classics in conjunction with an exhibition and other programs related to a major recent acquisition by the Cartoon Library and Museum (formerly the Cartoon Research Library).

Author of The 50 Greatest Cartoons, The Hanna-Barbera Treasury, and Not Just Cartoons: Nicktoons!, Beck is also the coeditor of cartoonbrew.com and the organizer of the popular Worst Cartoons Ever program. You can be sure he'll have plenty to say about 101 Dalmatians, the last Disney feature founder Walt lived to see (79 mins., 35mm); The Brave Little Tailor, which puts Mickey and Minnie in a Grimm Brothers' fairy-tale (8 mins., 35mm). Beck also introduces the Paramount cartoon Leprechaun's Gold. (10 mins., 35mm)

Beck signs copies of his publications in the Wexner Center Store from 6 to 7 PM.
