Rare 1930s Columbia Pictures Cartoons
Unseen in over 70 years!
Krazy Kat goes wild
George Herriman's Krazy Kat was one of the first comic strip characters adapted to animated cartoons (starting in 1916!). When the cat made the transition to talkie cartoons, she became a he - as well as a little more more Mickey and lot less Herriman - in the process.
Krazy was featured in a long-running series of black and white sound cartoons produced by Columbia Pictures Corp. beginning in 1929 (and ending in 1939). This program will present many rare original Charles Mintz Krazy Kat cartoons in 35mm - newly restored by Columbia Pictures - including several that were never distributed to television or seen since their original release. This is one for the hard core cartoon buffs - and anyone else who loves funny, bouncy, pre-code musical cartoons from the 1930s. Don't miss this rare classic cartoon event!
