The Tom Stathes Cartoon Carnival #10: Made in NYC!

    • Friday, June 8, 2012
    • 7:30pm until 9:30pm

  • New York City was the birthplace of American cinema with the earliest animated films created in the 1910s. This edition of The Tom Stathes Cartoon Carnival features selections of early and wacky animated cartoons created right here in New York City. Tom’s show, comprising... oddities from the 1910s through 1940s, is presented in 16mm form with a projector–the technology serving as part of the spectacle–in order to demonstrate how film was meant to be enjoyed. Cinephiles, cartoon and comic fans and lovers of all things vintage are sure to enjoy a Cartoon Carnival!

    Please keep in mind films of an early vintage tend to contain politically incorrect themes. Themes in the films do not reflect the sentiments of the exhibitor or the host venue. Due to the age and fragile nature of antique film prints, there may be momentary technical difficulties during the screening.

    Tom Stathes is a Cartoon Cryptozoologist, with a rare film print collection comprised of over 1,000 shorts. His archive consists of everything from Felix the Cat and Farmer Alfalfa to silent reels from Bray Studios and Out of the Inkwell. A native-New Yorker, he turned his passion for the city’s animation legacy into a preservation mission. With his Bray Animation Project, he has worked with several film and comic historians to document the studios invaluable output. For more information go to or

    Hosted by Atlas Obscura and the Obscura Society as well as Observatory of Brooklyn.
    Observatory: 543 Union Street #1E, Brooklyn, NY 11215

    Tickets are $12.00 and can be pre-purchased at the Eventbrite page:
