Hosted by Tom Stathes, this blog is dedicated to musings, studying, and collecting of early animated film. If you like silent animation, a genre so largely ignored by the historian faction, this is for you! Sponsored by Cartoons On Film.
It’s time for the next installment of the Tom Stathes Cartoon Carnival! For TSCC #14, I’ve put together another assortment of rare, bizarre, funny and quirky 16mm cartoons from the 1910s thru 50s for your enjoyment.
Facebook RSVP here--not required for attendance, but helps us gauge the amount of people coming.

I’ve had an almost lifelong interest in early animation and silent film. With the help of this blog, I like to periodically share research and update surfers on what I’m doing in this crazy field that is always full of surprises.
