Alice’s Wonderland

Alice Comedies series
animated short film history
Release: 1923
Country: USA
Director: Walt Disney

“Alice (Virginia Davis) visits an animation studio, where the animators (including Walt Disney) show her various scenes on their drawing boards. A few of them: a cat dancing to a cat band; a mouse poking at a cat until it moves; a couple of mice boxing, while the animators crowd around cheering and acting as corner-men. That night, she dreams of taking a train to cartoon-land, where a red carpet reception awaits. She appears in live action. They have a welcoming parade, with Alice riding on an elephant. The cartoons dance for her, and she dances for them. Meanwhile, the lions break out of the zoo. The lions chase her into a hollow tree, then into a cave and down a rabbit hole. Finally, she jumps off a cliff and awakes back in her bed.

Disney, animator Ub Iwerks, and their staff made Alice’s Wonderland while still heading the failing Laugh-O-Gram Studio in Kansas City, Missouri. This film was never released theatrically, but was instead shown to potential film distributors. After completing the film, the studio went bankrupt and was forced to shut down. After raising money by working as a freelance photographer, Disney bought a one-way train ticket to Los Angeles to live with his uncle Robert and his brother Roy.

In California, Disney continued to send out proposals for the Alice series, in hopes of obtaining a distribution agreement. A deal was finally arranged through Winkler Pictures. Because of a recent falling out with Pat Sullivan, the studio needed a quick replacement for their centerpiece Felix the Cat animated series. Disney convinced Virginia Davis’s family to bring her from Missouri to Los Angeles to star in the series.”

Trolley Troubles

1 in 26 of the Oswald the Lucky Rabbit series
animated short film history
Release: Sep. 5th, 1927
Country: USA
Director: Walt Disney

“This cartoon is noted for being the first appearance of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, a character that Disney and Ub Iwerks created for Universal Pictures and Charles B. Mintz. Oswald would later serve as the basis for Mickey Mouse.

Oswald is preparing a trolley to transport his Bunny Kids and other animal characters, but there are some obstacles. One is a cow that walks onto the tracks and refuses to move until Oswald drives the trolley underneath her. Oswald thinks that all is well until the hill gets steep. Oswald uses a goat to get the trolley up the hill; then down the hill. The trolley unexpectedly goes onto a bumpy road, forcing Oswald to toss his Bunny Kids out of the trolley one by one. Oswald prays that he’ll live; takes off his foot and rubs it on his head (as per the saying that a rabbit’s foot gives you good luck). Eventually the trolley crashes into a river and becomes a raft. Oswald uses a big stick to row it downstream.

In the early summer of 1927, Disney finished the first Oswald cartoon, entitled Poor Papa. However, Universal was not very satisfied. They had expected a more Charlie Chaplin-like character and thought Oswald was too elderly and too fat. Disney agreed to make some changes and the cartoon was not released in theatres at the time.

Instead, Oswald’s second-produced cartoon was submitted for release: Trolley Troubles. Universal was pleased and the short was released by Universal on September 5, 1927.

The press loved the new cartoon series Walt made and Oswald became a true hero. From that moment on, a new cartoon was released every two weeks.

As for Poor Papa, it was released eventually in theatres, although Universal held it back until 1928.

The copyright for Trolley Troubles expired in 1955.”

when i expressed disappointment that the only cameos of pre-fall reyes in animated shorts are pictures in which he’s scowling/frowning (despite how hot he looks in them) that are only shown for like 5 seconds, a lot of ppl were like “i take what i can get” and on one hand Mood on the other hand im tired of settling!! blizzard fucking animate him so i can buss already damn!!!

something that makes me feel all weird inside is when people don’t include Genji and Tracer in old Overwatch pictures (not even in the background). they were a part of Overwatch back then, so why aren’t they included?

is it because Genji was a “late” edition? is it because Tracer’s age is listed as 26 and she would have been born during the crisis and it doesn’t make sense? (i’ll post about that later)

people always put Ana, Jack, Gabriel, and Reinhardt in (also not uncommon to see is youngish Jesse, Angela and kid Fareeha) but you almost never see Torbjorn, Tracer, Winston, or Genji. why is this?

A short animated picture from my Modern Magic AU.

As a quick reminder, Rick has had a hard life. In this story he is a drug addict whose life is saved by chance by Stan. Please don’t do hardcore drugs kids. Stay safe and please in all seriousness don’t think drugs are cool.

Sorry to get real but that is a serious message related to this AU I thought I should address too.
