Movie Reviews

A collection of public domain 30s/40s Christmas cartoons
Zack Davisson | Seattle, WA, USA | 09/12/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

""Christmas Cartoon Classics" has the usual collection of old public-domain Christmas cartoons that we have come to expect on these various classic Christmas cartoon DVD compilations. This collection is in fact identical to the "Classic Christmas Cartoons" DVD released by Delta Music Incorporated.

Each of these cartoons are good fun, and true "classics." The real standouts of the collection are the Fleischer Bros. cartoons, and Ub Iwerk's spooky "Jack Frost." Being from the 30's and 40's, several of them are depression-influenced, showing sad-eyed orphans and poor kids lusting for Christmas treats, and may contain a few stereotypes of an unpleasant nature, but nothing terribly shocking.

Definitely for lovers of old cartoons only, or very young children who don't mind the different styles and slightly odd characters.

The DVD is of poor quality, which is expected for such ancient cartoons. Restoration takes money, and this collection of public domain prints is just to get them out there. Nothing fancy, but nice to have in any form.

The seven cartoons are:

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (Max Fleischer, 1948)
Christmas Comes But Once a Year (Dave Fleischer, 1936)
Somewhere in Dreamland (Dave Fleischer, 1936)
Jack Frost (Ub Iwerks, 1934)
Santa's Surprise (Seymour Kneitel, 1947)
Hector's Hectic Life (Bill Tytla, 1948)
Snow Foolin' (1949)"

"I noticed the studio is listed as Gotham. It is actually from Alpha Videos - notorious for exremely poor quality transfers. I am in the process of returning it. If you don't mind the static, red hue and snow, go ahead."
