Forget the Governor’s Ball and the Vanity Fair bash – I’m having two Post-Oscar parties next week in L.A. and mine feature cartoons!
CARTOON DUMP – Monday February 28th at 8pm
Our monthly live comedy/cartoon revue, Cartoon Dump, goes on as usual Monday evening at 8pm! Instead of honoring the Best Animation of the year, we take pride in ripping the Worst Cartoons Ever Made! Join me, Frank Conniff (MST3K), Erica Doering, J. Elvis Weinstein, Mighty Mr. Titan and special character guest Emo Philips (as our resident Cartoon Musicology Professor) and stand-up comedy guest Kyle Kinane at the Steve Allen Theater, 4773 Hollywood Blvd. â€¢ Free Parking! â€¢ Advanced Tickets here â€¢ Phone: (323) 666-9797 â€¢ Map & Directions. Tell us you’re coming on Facebook!
ANIMATION TUESDAYS – Tuesday March 1st at 8pm
This month we welcome guest curators Mark Caballero and Seamus Walsh of Screen Novelties as they spotlight rare Rankin-Bass goodies from their collections, as well as highlight work from the studio’s unsung heroes: the Japanese animators who were responsible for much of their aesthetic. Capping off the evening is an incredibly rare screening of the studio’s first AniMagic feature Willy McBean and his Magic Machine (1965), which follows the rollicking adventures through time of a boy and his monkey pal. Join us as we pay much-due tribute to these godfathers of pop-culture!
