VG Flash #25 – Who Turned Out the Lights?

And here we are: the last VG Flash of the backlog and this month’s cartoon.  I’ve had to watch a lot of old-school cartoons. Even the good ones are nearly incomprehensible. Has anyone actually sat down and watched an old Betty Boop short? They’re like the dreams of a madman with severe head trauma. Many old cartoons also feature some kind of musical number, no matter how pointless, since back then people used them to promote songs.

FUN FACT: That old style actually has a name, and it’s “rubber hose” animation. The name comes from the fact that the characters’ limbs were usually tube-like and could bend anywhere. THE MORE YOU KNOW.

From here on out, the cartoon updates will be much more sparse. But have no fear! Wil and Zee will still show up quite regularly in various ways. I gots me some plans, I does! Anyway, I hope everyone has a nice day tomorrow. Americans will be celebrating Thanksgiving, but I hope you international folks have a great day too!

  1. Oh man, I know what you mean..I used to love The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat when I was a kid (which was kind of a weird show in its own right), so I thought I’d dig the older original cartoons too. And then I watched some and I was like…”come again?”

    And I totally want to go to an Old Timey Rave now. “UNTZ UNTZ UNTZ 23 SKIDOO!”

  2. I don’t even what just happened… I loved how random the text was but the video was just mind boggling. I have to say, for the fact of how unique this is compared to everything else out there now these days this was entertaining to watch. You did a great job on capturing the art style on this, you never cease to amaze me with how different you can make one flash be from the next.
