I love this blogging! So much swifter and easier to organize than my old website. If things work out, I'm gonna stay around a while.

Drawings from recent sketchbooks.

Our song of today is interpreted by Prof. Sid Raymond, voice of Baby Huey and Katnip.
April 26, 1950, New York City, Atlantic Records, catalog no. 921, 78 audio recording, "Tommy Reynolds and His Orchestra, Featuring Prof. Sid Raymond and His Dancing Teeth".
Plus our cartoon for today: The Terrytoon, Farmer Al Falfa's 20th Anniversary-1936. Celebration of a generation of entertainment proves that some things never change. It's very spirited, though, and had me tapping my feet and laughing out loud while reviewing it.
Note: Terrytoons was welcoming an influx of talent from the closing Van Beuren Studio at the time (animators Carlo Vinci, Larry Silverman, Reuben Timmins among others). One will see an intrusion by a favorite Burt Gillett star.
Oldtimer Jerry Shields' work, however, remains exactly the same as it was at the time of the Farmer's debut.
I'd also like to remind you that my one-man, one-night gallery show is this coming Sunday, Nov. 10, 6-9 pm,in L.A. More info here:
Let's say Aloha, not goodbye.-MK

Love the Dimwit image. And in the picture below it: who's the character with Sourpuss?

The cat wasn't meant to be Sourpuss, but the mouse is spun off from a clothed early 1930s Terry mouse.
