"Finding His Voice" (1929) or "The Family Album" (1931)
« on: December 30, 2012, 10:25:21 am »
I finally got around to trying out the whole blogging thing this year and one topic I discussed were the two cartoons made for Western Electric "Finding His Voice" and "The Family Album".  I personally love both of these cartoons and I was kind of curious what other members and cartoon enthusiasts thought of them and, if so, why you enjoyed them.   :D

Finding His Voice is a fun cartoon despite the out of sync mouth movements

"The Family Album" is available on Steve's Cultoon Volume 2 set; A must for any theatrical cartoon DVD collection!  ;)

I wonder why "Mister Public Address System" never became as famous as Mickey and Bugs!
