So recently, I went on an antiquing adventure with a few chums to find these 8mm cartoon reels. I've always wanted to collect them, just never had quite the cash. They're kind of hard to find I think too. There are a couple I'm really looking for, some toons I use to watch as a lil baby kid. One especially titled "Boy Meets Dog". It's perfect in every way. It's funny, I believe it was made to educate children about dental care. There's a whole lil diddy in the start about massaging your gums twice a day and so on. Good song though. If you're interested, I'm sure it's on youtube.
So I found:
Woody Woodpecker- Solid Ivory
Tom & Jerry?- Rattle Bones
"Kitty Kat"- Cat Nap [obviously Felix or a Felix rip off?]
The last two are discount toon boxes I think.
So my friend Tony AKA owns an 8mm projector, we are going to have a lil party and watch these toons as well as some of his and his brother Prong's 8mm horror films. Should be a hoot.
and I'm going to be making rootbeer float cupcakes for the event! [Thanks to Tone on that one, we were discussing cup cake ideals.]
Hope ya like my new cheesy banner! Cheesed to the maximum! Mmm..cheese!
Also, I wish to go here first thing when it opens!
