Rare 1950s animated shorts

Just for fun, here’s title cards for a few shorts which will be included in my forthcoming Chronicle book on 1950s animation design. It’s a shame that industrial and educational films from that period are so difficult to see nowadays because many of those films feature terrific design and animation. Luckily, one of the films below – STOP DRIVING US CRAZY (1959) – is readily available for online viewing at Archive.org. Also, I should mention that the reason you’ll be seeing images from these films in the book is because of film collectors like Mark Kausler and Mark Newgarden who generously allowed me to scan in their prints. Thanks guys!
