Daffy Duck in Hollywood" (1938)

I've always liked this gag.

But... what's wrong with this picture?

I'll give them that one. They could be wide fronds. 😀

Ok how about this....shadowing on the sign letters has the sun to the left, but the shadowing on the gate and pillars has the sun coming from the right.

Yeah, someone must have been copying letters off a sample font sheet without thinking how drop shadows worked. 🤔

There's another one in there.

The gate is attached on both sides, but there's no division between it. (It can't open.) Still, it could just be ornamentation above the actual entrance.

I've wondered about that. The attachments to the pillars are so slight to be hinges that I figure it really is just an ornamental span.

 

There is a more glaring problem remaining, however. 😀

I had not noticed that. It does look odd.

But there is still a more visible mistake .

The choice of colour for the clouds maybe?

Bigger than that. It is something fronter and centerer than the clouds.

Hmmm. If the light is coming from the upper right (as lighting on the stone pillars suggests) you might not need a shadow from the tree.

What I'm looking at is a clear human mistake and awkward quick fix.

It's such a glaring error, I don't know how they could justify it.

(That's a hint, son!)

OK. One... last... hint! 

This scene has a similar problem to the above one, but not nearly as dire...

You are correct!

 

It looks like someone totally forgot the "IF" and then just tacked it on the side to shoot the scene. 😀

I guess with water colors, repainting the whole line would not work?

I remember just barely noticing it when I saw that cartoon on TV, back in the 80s maybe.

But I wasn't sure if i had seen it or not and I never saw it again until I got this DVD set.

scenes from un-aired pilot for a TV series starring William Schallert and trouble-making cartoon character named "Philbert."

This was primarily a project of Friz Freleng.

Live action directed by Richard Donner, later of "The Omen," "Superman" and "Lethal Weapon" fame.

"The Aristo-Cat" (1943) is famous for the backgrounds by John McGrew.  So flat that the stairs don't have steps except for the cat's feet telling you where they are.

On one of the commentary tracks the difference between Sylvester's and Daffy Duck's voice is brought up.

It is not that "Daffy" is Mel Blanc's "Sylvester" voice sped up, although that much is true.

The real difference, according to Mel Blanc, is that Sylvester is Gentile and Daffy is Jewish. In Mel Blanc's mind, Daffy was a Jewish comedian, a vaudevillian.

When learning about layout I remember my teachers saying to be cautious about how background objects lineup with characters heads,
here it looks like the animators lined up Daffy intentionally under that tree... it adds to the humour.

"The Bear's Tale" (1940)

So "estimated reading time" was a thing even back in 1940? The US wasn't in the war yet so it's not a war-time efficiency measure...

The skylight in the back is a classic device of the film noir style. It's not easy doing film noir... in Technicolor!

"One More Time" (1931) is a Mickey Mouse cartoon after a transporter mishap. It looks like Mickey, it moves like Mickey but... something is not quite right in this universe.

Machine guns, rap battles, and lots of toe-tapping big-city jazz.

Also... "One More Time" sure sounds a lot like "42nd Street".

In "Satan's Waitin'" (1953,) Hell for cats is like one of the visions of Fatima, a fiery pit of snarling, snapping, bulldog demons.

I don't think this one ever made it to the Bugs Bunny-Road Runner Funtime Hour on Saturday morning.

This cartoon must have been filmed in my house.

It has the mice, it has the obsolete "post and tube" wiring, and it has the boards just barely held together by a nail driven through a corner.
