Osomatsu-Kun ('60s version)
Created by Fujio Akatsuka in 1962, this is one of the first gag manga to have existed. I thank Charles Brubaker for discovering this and our next video. http://cartoonresearch.com/index.php/osomatsu-ku n/
This particular TV cartoon has been in production since 1969 and still uses painted cels. It can be summed up as Japan's answer to the Simpsons, but with better animation. http://cartoonresearch.com/index.php/the-longest -running-tv-cartoon-ever/
This is one of the last cartoons that Terrytoons made that had a well-animated intro.
Al Capp's Li'l Abner
This half-assed attempt at adapting Al Capp's famous strip proved that:
1. Dave Fleischer couldn't stop Screen Gems cartoons from sucking cock. (Neither could Bob Wickersham, Frank Tashlin, Alex Lovy, Cal Howard, Ray Katz, Henry Binder, Bob Clampett, Sid Marcus, or Art Davis.)
2. Alec Geiss and Allen Rose were the '40s equivalent of Notorious Milkshake. (As in lacking in direction skills, animation skills, and comedic talent.)
The Mighty Heroes
Here's one show that Ralph Bakshi created for Terrytoons that lasted for one season.
Fractured Fables - The Fuz
Here's another Bakshi short, this time it's one of the last Fleischer/Famous/Paramount cartoons.
Here's the series that put the forgotten UPA/United Film studio in the spotlight.
Chimp and Zee
Here's a Merrie Melody/Looney Tune from the '60s that was created by Alex Lovy and had great music by Bill Lava.
This was the last serialized character in Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies, and this episode was the last cartoon that Bob McKimson, Bob Givens, and Cal Howard did for the studio. (McKimson died from a heart attack after finishing Pink Panther 076 while eating lunch with Friz Freleng and David DePatie.)
