Rare Animation on TCM: “Silent Cartoons”

Here’s a fun gallery of actual film frames from the collection of Tom Stathes – the collector extraordinaire who provided the rare prints that ran on on TCM’s Rare Animation night (Oct. 21st 2012). These films were shown as part of an hour of Silent Animation From New York Studios – and included shorts from Bray Studios (poster #1, logo #2 and trade ad #3), The Artists Dream (#4), Bobby Bumps Starts For School (#5), The Haunted Hotel (#6), Mutt and Jeff in Fireman, Save My Child (#7), Jerry on the Job in The Bomb Idea (#8), Koko the Clown in Trip To Mars (#9), Al Falfa in Springtime (#10), Krazy Kat in Scents and Nonsense (#11) and Van Bueren’s sound cartoon The Farmerette (#12). More information on each short is posted here.
