Mystery Frame

Anyone know the name of the cartoon this scene is from?

No prizes… just thought this was a cool image from a classic cartoon I was reviewing this week and thought it would be fun to post it. This rare cartoon is part of a DVD collection I’ll be plugging a lot this year. Consider this your first sneak peek.

    “A Haunting We Will Go” from Lantz…. Can’t wait for THIS DVD!

    Bingo! You got it, Thad. This non-contest is over!

  • Michael Eilerman

    Is this like a Marvel no Prize? lol Nuff Said.

    The cartoon is “A Haunting We Will Go” (1939), directed by Burt Gillett, famously known for directing a grand number of Walt Disney’s Silly Symphonies Cartoons, among them, “The Three Little Pigs”)

    Did I get it right?

    Otherwise known as “Lonesome Ghosts 2″. :)

    Kinda Kricfalusi-like, but before he was born….

  • Jippy

    How can it be Kricfalusi-like? We all know he’s TOTALLY original like he tells us on his blog ;)

    What’s interesting is that this cartoon (starring Li’l Eightball) is one of those illuminated (with copious screen grabs) on that Classic Cartoon blog in the post just below. Serendipity, indeed.

    this reminds me, does anyone know what the ghost cartoon was that was shown in look whos talking too, or was now. Maybe this is from the same cartoon.

    L’il Eightball on DVD… who’da thunk we’d see the day?!?

    (Here’s hoping the first two shorts are also included)

    I’m with Thad — I absolutely can’t wait for this release!!!

    I only hope there’s more focus on the non Woody’s with this next volume as the earlier Andy Panda, Cartune Classics, Swing Symphony, Musical Miniatures and Foolish Fables series really outshine the post-50′s Woody theatricals and are the real gems of the Lantz studios once you get past the classic 1940 Woody years. I’m just screwy enough to want to own a complete collection of Cartune Classics on their own!
