Two Deitch cartoons were animated in Zagreb {Out of 28 Deitch KFS Popeyes, 15 were animated in Prague, 7 were by Halas & Batchelor, 2 by Zagreb Film and the remaining 4 by a studio in Rome}:

Intellectual Interlude
(which is also the shortes KFS Popeye)
and Have Time Will Travel

The Zagreb Film style is still visible, even though the animation is low-budget.

The studio records credit Deitch for story on both. Željko Kanceljak directed animation in the first, Darko Gospodneti? in the second. Rudolf Borošak did the backgrounds in the first, Sr?an Mati? in the second.

Didn't know about the two Zagreb Popeyes. Here's one of the four Italian-animated ones, and the one which (at least in New York) got the least amount of air time --
"Voice from the Deep (or See Here, Sea Hag)"


The interesting thing to note about the four cartoons handled by Deitch and made in Italy is that while the animation designs have that European early-60s movement and Popeye does go off-model at times, the characters in general are slightly more fully animated than the other KFS efforts.

Because it's a minute longer than a regular KFS Popeye?

Not sure -- Ch. 5 loved to cram four cartoons into one half-hour when they had the KFS Popeye package, so that might be the reason (though WNEW back in the day also had no compunction about editing down some of the post-64 Warners cartoons to squeeze into time slots, and were among the first stations to edit for PC reasons, so it wasn't as if they didn't know where the scissors and tape were).

The other thing I forgot to mention about Deitch's Italian quartet is whoever the background artist was really went to town on some of the layouts, which in certain spots are way better than anything else in the series and even include a couple of fuzzed backgrounds to create a pseudo 3-D effect (not quite Max & Dave's stereoptical process, but still surprising given the limited budgets of the KFS Popeye efforts).

Since we suddenly lost Davey Jones, here's a very campy song he did for Mickey Mouse"s 50th birthday:

Well, it was the '70's.

Can it be legal--whole movies, like those Disney classics, on YouTube...put on by individuals and
not the studios themselves? Maybe, maybe not, but they might be getting on there because they're posted from other countries--or some people get around it by mirroring the file. Using something like Windows Movie Maker and flipping it to its mirror image--very noticeable
when print is shown.
YouTube and Hulu have put up entire films with permission from the rights-holders (sometimes
with ads thrown in) but indeed I'm seeing uploads of entire movies such as these, and not by the studios.

That couldn't be legal, it has the 3-D look.  Coming out on DVD soon though.

EDIT:  I can turn the 3-D off.  Sweet!

Speaking of "I Tawt I Taw a Putty Tat", Andrew Gilmore pointed this out to me. Helen Kane's cover of said song.

The lyrics are different. And apparently a real life cat is getting the crap beaten out of him on stage.

A bootleg copy of "Daffy's Rhapsody". Only the end credits are missing.

Watching this in 3D was pretty surreal. And at the end it really looks like Elmers is pointing his gun at the audience, AND THEN BLASTING THEM!!!!

I still think this is Matthew O'Callighan's best short by far. Since there's more shorts being made (as Jerry said on Stu's Show), he's got work to do if he wants to top this one.

"Let's Go" (1937)

Great Depression era short featuring the Queen Bee helping out poor grasshoppers. What I find strange about the cartoon is that the grasshoppers appear to raise tiny chickens or perhaps the insects are actually giants...
