Rainy Day Sunshine Fun-Time Sunday Low-Res Cartoon Show #32

I thought I'd show old cartoons like I play old records, but can't find a host. The rights are even more complicated here so I've gotten around it by only embedding things that have already been posted by someone else, absolving me altogether.

I take no responsibility for anything removed by the rightholders, watermarks from previous second-generation sources, editing, cropping, or other ways links that have been broken by parties other than me. Once in a while you'll come across offensive racial stereotypes. Remember the cartoon is about the story and not about them. SOMETHING FOR NOTHING

Magic Whistle Radio Hour 166

Things I've collected over the years or acquired on mixtapes and comps or gathered from the internet or the library or my parents' attic. The different sources are the reason for the volume disparity. I make no claims to "discovering" or "owning" anything. Probably neither do you. It's whatever I feel like playing that week. Every Saturday. No repeats. Things that may or may not be familiar. Who knows? The time's next to each song in case you don't like something or it's icky or if you don't want your kids to hear it. Don't let offense at one song cloud your impression of the curation as a whole. Past weeks here too. Just type "Audio" in the search engine. Or if you're too lazy to press a button more than once, here's everything up to January 2018. You don't get the all playlists, though. You can right-click this if you want to save a zip file of this one (containing an mp3 of the file) for later. Here what information I was able to find:

Cartoons I don't Get #35

In many cases here, it's not a question of “What's going on?” but “Why?”

Sex to Sexty c. 1970s
Is this a game of boxing where the rules are that the crew are also the opponents and the fight still goes on on between rounds? Hello Buddies, 1950s
Cavalade, August 1942
Playboy, February 1960
Is that a frowning mouth or her ear?
For Laughing Out Loud, March 1960
Judge October 9, 1909
Cartoonists would have the woman's manner of dress vary depending on which publication they sold it to, or would redraw it, which looks like the case here. I still can't tell exactly what “Big Ed” did and if that smudge is her lipstick or just a smudge in the printing.
Knight, September 1966
Playboy, December 1967
Life January 5, 1905
As notorious as The New Yorker is for their fact-checking, they didn't seem to notice the driver's sides were on opposite sides. Or is that the joke?
New Yorker August 25. 1925
Punch, April 1984
Punch September 26, 1915
Punch December 22, 1915

Timmy, 1 of 2

This issue of Four-Color Comics, #715 from August 1956, was based on the strip Timmy by Howard Sparber. These comics were probably not by Sparber, but one of the artists who regularly worked for Dell Comics, probably the same editor as John Stanley.
