Chris Columbus, Jr. is another early Lantz Oswald cartoon with animation by Tex Avery
On a blog dedicated to the 100th birthday of Tex Avery, it showed one of his early works as an animator: Walter Lantz' Chris Columbus, Jr. This one starred Oswald the Lucky Rabbit as the title character who does what the original man tried to do-prove the world was round and discovering a new land. Like many of these early talkies, this cartoon is mainly musical with many amusing gags to fill up six minutes. I'm not sure if many of these gags were unique to Avery but I'm sure quite a few turn up in later cartoons he later directed for Warner Bros. and M-G-M. So on that note, Chris Columbus, Jr. is worth a least a look for animation buffs who like Fred "Tex" Avery.
