T.E. Powers & Raoul Barré (1916)
Here’s a fun and quirky comic-style animated cartoon by famed animator Raoul Barré of Barré Studios who would later go on to direct animated Mutt & Jeff cartoons in the style of the original comic-strip creator Bud Fisher complete with text balloons much like in the cartoon above.
These short satires of contemporary life are based on Tom Powers’ newspaper comics. The comic-strip structure is barely altered in the two “Phables,” from a seven-film series of 1915-16 animated by the Canadian cartoonist Raoul Barré before he moved on to direct adaptations of the Mutt & Jeff strip. Providing odd marginal commentary in each film are the stick-figures Joys and Gloom.
I think it’s important to keep the past alive
And many of them I learned about in college and just self research
No. I have looked on there before, but I find a lot of stuff on YouTube by suggestion because I’m such a big Animation geek
Do you go to the LOC database website to find these?
Very fun find indeed
Cute and interesting conclusion drawn from it.
