Cartoon Carnival 45: Ladies Night

Oh yes, it’s ladies night, and the feeling’s right! 

It’s time to sit back and relax for Cartoon Carnival #45—we’ll be kicking back with some two hours’ worth of 16mm (no digital!) animated cartoons from the 1920s to the 1940s, straight from the Stathes Archives to the silver screen at Standard ToyKraft. This time, we’re celebrating leading female characters, which were a rarity in the early days of cartoons. Betty Boop, Little Lulu, and some famous fairytale characters will obviously be a part of the program…but so will a host of other lesser-knowns and one-shots. Come on out with friends and pay homage to the ladies of early animation with us.

Show tix $10 at the door. 
Light refreshments will be available for purchase from Standard ToyKraft.

Doors at 7:30pm; show starts soon thereafter. Arrive on time for good seats! 
Tommy Stathes is a "Cartoon Cryptozoologist" with a rare film print collection comprised of over 1,500 shorts. Tommy's long term goal has been to acquire and preserve as many early animated films as possible and reintroduce them to the public. For more information about his activities, check out and
