“Modern Art of Gene Deitch” Coming To Cartoon Brew TV

Howdy Doody and His Magic Hat

Beginning next week, join us at Cartoon Brew TV for a special film series celebrating the “Modern Art of Gene Deitch.” If you think you’re familiar with the animated works of the legendary Gene Deitch, think again. We’ve been collaborating with the master himself to dig out his rarest and most obscure modernist shorts. We even found one film that Gene hadn’t seen in fifty-five years! Many of the films in our line-up are industrial and educational shorts which were never intended to last more than a few years, much less into the 21st century. But the artistry and craftsmanship that Gene and his crew put into the films have given them a far longer shelf-life than anybody anticipated–and soon audiences will be enjoying them again.
