38 cartoons would be most of the non-Magoo shorts (with the exception of RAGTIME BEAR, which is known to be on the set).

I've been curious to see some of the lesser-known one-shot UPAs for years. This is good news!

Swing You Sinners, from 1930. I can watch this cartoon again and again and get something new from it. It reaches levels of weirdness that the animated cartoon never quite equaled.

I didn't know Amby Paliwoda was an animator at WB! That guy bounced around all over the place, and finally wound up directing for Sam Singer... such an ignoble fate!

Not a strong entry by any means, but this was _not_ the last of Avery's cartoons before his hiatus. I believe all of the Avery cartoons released in the 1952 season were done before his break. I've seen a soundtrack/dialog script for Magical Maestro dated Sept. 1949. That's interesting--I always tho...

This is one of Avery's lesser works, from a very tough period in his life and career--it was done right before Avery's hiatus/nervous breakdown, when Dick Lundy slid into his position to churn out more MGM cartoon product. Avery's 1951 cartoons are a truly mixed bag. SYMPHONY IN SLANG is a genuinely...

I hadn't seen this Famous cartoon before. It's the most solid of the Herman-Henry-Chicken Pie series. Dig that great reaction shot at 5:43. Beautiful, expressive cartooning. I like how the mid-40s Famous cartoons still retain some of that c. 1938 Fleischer clunkiness in the character designs. The re...

Who Killed Who was not reissued. the titles remained unchanged since it's original release. In 1981, I programmed a night of Avery cartoons for the student film series at Florida State University. The print of WHO KILLED WHO? we got from Films Incorporated had the 4th MGM logo at the beginning, not...

I've seen it in some 1946 cartoons. It seems to have been retired for the 1947 season.
