Cartoon Carnival 53: Fairytales & Fables

February 25, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 10:30 pm


It’s time to sit back and relax for another hefty batch of 16mm (no digital!) animated cartoons from the 1910s to the 1940s, straight from the Stathes Archives to the silver screen at Shoestring Press…

Throughout animation history, it was immensely popular to adapt (and spoof!) classic fairytales and fables from antiquity…sometimes giving them a ‘modern’ spin. This was especially true in the era of theatrical shorts, and we’re showcasing these whimsical animated versions of yesteryear to combat a dreary bit of February cabin fever. Mother Goose? Little Red Riding Hood? Cinderella? Snow White? Aladdin? Jack & the Beanstalk? We’ll have ’em, and many others, at TSCC #53. Bring a friend…bring the kids…bring anyone!!

Show tix $10 at the door.
Light refreshments will be available for purchase from Shoestring Press.

Doors at 8pm; show starts promptly thereafter. Arrive on time for good seats!
Tommy Stathes is a “Cartoon Cryptozoologist” with a rare film print collection comprised of over 1,500 shorts. Tommy’s long term goal has been to acquire and preserve as many early animated films as possible and reintroduce them to the public.
