Storyline

This Tom and Jerry cartoon (the human versions, not the cat and mouse) is an opportunity for the animators to have fun with the medium. There is no specific plot. One of the boys uses a pencil to create a myriad number of animated illusions that could only work in a cartoon. For example, a short vertical line is drawn, which when held by both ends suddenly becomes a saxophone. When played, the notes pop out of the bell of the instrument to suddenly grow legs and transform into ducks. After the song, the saxophone itself quickly follows suit and becomes a goose. The entire short consists of these disjointed, though often creative and humorously unlikely events. Written by Anonymous

in some ways very creative and in others, very old fashioned

This is an early Tom and Jerry cartoon--but NOT the ones you are probably thinking about. Instead of a mouse and a cat, Tom and Jerry were originally a very simply animated black and white cartoons by a small-time studio. And, while the animation quality is pretty low (even for 1932), the story is so wild and different it held my interest. Tom (or was it Jerry?),...well, the little guy began to have fun with his pencil--drawing all kinds of characters that magically came to life. All these scenes were pretty amusing. At one point, he draws some veggies who start singing--then he twists them into the shapes of people and they begin acting out a fight between a good guy and bad guy. Ultimately, the good guy and his girl are placed on railroad tracks. Hmmmm,...considering how strange and disjoint this short became, I wonder if maybe somebody was on something here! Compared to most cartoons of the 40s and 50s, this is a very poor cartoon, but it's at least original and strange enough to merit a quick peek.
