Here's a cartoon I tinkered with way back in 2004. I must have been 15 at the time.
"Tanked" is a reissued and probably edited version of Bonzo in the Army (1925).
Hope you enjoy my SFX and stuff....I had lots of fun doing these "enhancements" back then. Shame I didn't save more of them.

Now, you know I loves me some BONZO!

How'd you go about adding the music and SFX back in 2004?

Thanks for sharing.

That was back when I had a fairly GOOD pc and some editing software on it....with windows as you know, a good thing never lasts too long.
I hope to be doing even better than that soon enough.
Glad you enjoyed it :-D
P.S. -- gotta send your Bonzo DVD soon!

When I was 15 I was sticking fruit loops up my nose and sampling crayon flavors.
Well done.

Got the Bonzo disc!

I'll probably go into "cartoon nerd" gear and re-burn a new version with chapter breaks for each one of the cartoons.

If I go into "cartoon nerd overdrive" I might even dub in some music or something.

These are great cartoons and deserve more widespread expsoure.

Tom's doing his part!

Awesome, Craig. Say, did you enjoy Aladdin Bonzo and Sandy McBonzo? Those two come from ancient, mid-20s warped 16mm prints in my collection. I believe they actually have "Pathe" printed on the film stock...I really should make reversals of them when I've got the money.
