EDIT: If you scroll down, there's links to others. Hopefully those will give you more information...

The Yahoo! News article has plenty of information along with video of "Harem Scarem".

If you guys read the article in question, all that was shared is a compilation of known animation drawings from HAREM SCAREM. Not the actual film.

^I read the article before posting the link and understood the discovery was of drawings for "Harem Scarem" shot piece by piece for the video accompanying the article.

Boy, we sure are finding alot of lost silent cartoons recently.  I hope we find most of the other Oswalds.   :ozzie:


Edit: It looks like Thad was right.  It was just some of the animation drawings for the short.  Not the actual cartoon.

ONLY THE DRAWINGS WERE FOUND. The earliest articles made that clear, but others distorted it.

Some of those drawings were in the Illusion of Life book, so some of them were re-discovered in a way.

Talk about misleading title posts and article headlines! It's good to see Disney digging up rare animation and sharing it with fans (especially Oswald), but it's hardly the same as unearthing an entire original cartoon.

For more exciting early Disney finds, check out David's new blog post about original Mickey titles.

Can we change the title of this thread.

But how cool would it be if someone located a complete production material from a lost cartoon? Then all he needed to do would be re filmed.

Why is it when something's found, the first reaction is to auction it off to some rich Joe Schmoe on the street?

Couldn't they just, you know, direct the drawings back to Disney or something?

Brandon, these aren't drawings which have been auctioned off to the rich, but drawings which the Disney Company already hold. They've recently put them in order and presented them as a very short piece of animation. I think you must have missed the link to the article which Mario500 has already posted:

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/sideshow/exclusive-85-old-disney-cartoon-harem-scarem-unearthed-180839300.html

This article is of note not only because you can see the filmed drawings, but because it contains the word "Fanniversary". Which is hilarious to anyone in the UK with the mind of a ten year old (like me)!
