Fuss and Featers (1952)

Postby Woody Woodpecker » Wed Oct 26, 2011 9:18 am

Well I was reading Graham Webb is book the Animated Film Enclopedia and I came cross this supposed Terrytoon title Fuss and Feathers. The plot given in the book for this supposed to be short is as follow A robin wings his way north, to find a house for his family. A cat moves in, capture the birds and battle ensues. I wonder if this ever existed in first place I don't find this anywhere else not in online catalog and Jerry Beck don't offer this his garage sale.

...Annnnnd it's NOT listed in the Copyright Catalog either! BUT for Webb to have a synopsis means he got it from SOMEWHERE. Could be a case of a retitling job...

Perhaps it's an older cartoon, just reissued under new title? The plot reminds me very much of "The First Robin" (a Terrytoon from 1939).

The given synopsis is similar to the First Robin, but not identical.

A remake could be possible. I suppose they could have even edited it down to better fit the synopsis.
