Black Out in Black and White, 17 November 2008
Author: boblipton from New York City

A series of black-out gags, the sort of tidbits you might get in the news reels in the era, but sharply written by Warren Foster, beautifully directed by the inimitable Bob Clampett and narrated in the radio-perfect voice of --- Elmer Fudd? While a couple fall flat, you might get an idea of how good this is by comparing it to HOBBY HORSE LAFFS, produced by Termite Terrace the same year, but written by Melvin Miller and directed by Norm McCabe, who would disappear into the army later in the year and who would never direct a cartoon again.

Schlesinger was moving production towards all color shorts, but there would be a few more through 1943, mostly directed by Frank Tashlin. By the end of 1944, all major cartoon production in the US would be in color.
