Cartoon Fight Club

For my Cinefamily animation screening this month we’re going twelve rounds with an all-star championship card that pits Tom vs. Jerry, Popeye vs. Bluto, and Bugs vs The Crusher. I’ve compiled a brutal collection of animation’s “funniest beatings” (as John K. might say); headbanging, eye-bulging cartoon entertainment they don’t show on TV anymore, with rare 35mm and 16mm film prints (including several in Technicolor).

Join us tonight (4/6) at 8pm, in Hollywood, at the CineFamily/Silent Movie Theatre.
And remember the first rule of Cartoon Fight Club — tell everyone about Cartoon Fight Club!

    If I’d live in L.A, I’d go to all this kind of things.

    Man, I would love to see that print of ‘Puppet Murder Case’ in person or, better yet, own it on DVD!
