History Detectives features Jerry Beck

Postby Hutch » Wed Aug 25, 2010 1:39 pm

You might want to check the episode of PBS's HISTORY DETECTIVES scheduled ot air on Monday 8/30 (on most PBS stations). It features a collection of production cells and production art from a number of studios, including Warner, Disney and Ted Eshbaugh. Most of the serment keys on a series of cells from the first Buddy cartoon "Buddy's Day Out". Both Jerry Beck and Martha Sigall are interviewd on the segment.

That's a pretty cool show anyway - this will make that episode even more special.

Interesting. I don't even watch PBS much so I had never heard of the show, but I'll be sure to check it out this week. Furthermore, I didn't even think cells from Buddy cartoons even existed today!

They had a good one a couple years ago featuring that supposedly older version of "Micky Mouse" that allegedly predated Disney's Mickey Mouse - I forget the name of the company that came up with this toy, something-form?

Anyway, I'd guess that a lot of folks on this forum who are obviously into collecting of one or more sorts would enjoy this show a lot, because it's primarily about investigating old things that people find in their attic.

^ I remember reading an article about a Micky Mouse doll being sold in NY in the 1920's. It was apparently patented in 1926. Here's an article about that.

Well, that was a fun way to kill 20 minutes.

Thanks for the information Jerry!
