Listen carefully to the introductory preamble!
Max Fleischer - favourite cartoonist
Boy, it has been a long time since I heard THAT song! (The first one.) I really enjoyed hearing it again.
The second one, The Max Fleischer piece, I have seen in both complete and heavily edited versions over the years. Although it has been a long time since I saw the full version. I really do think the world has gone completely mad. To think that cartoon/singalong could be seriously offensive boggles the brain.
On a side note. My grandmother loved to play her mandolin, and sing a variety of songs. This, and "Silver Threads Among the Gold" were two of her favorites. I listened to her sing this song probably a hundred times over the years of my youth.
Maybe I am being mean and nasty here? Not revealing the content? I thoroughly enjoyed both of the first two. The third and forth are long enough that I will have to wait till I have some free time before I can watch them. (6 to 8 minutes I can handle during some days. Most days anything over ten minutes has to wait till later.)
Sorry Wayne, I was uploading while the wife was calling me to the table so I just put the links on with no text.
1st Wild about Horns on Automobiles
2nd In my Merry Oldsmobile
3rd The Garage. Arbuckle & Keaton
4th The Plank English silent comedy
No worries, Jem B, Most people giving links to interesting videos don't say much about what it is. It doesn't bother me any. I figure that is part of the "cabin fever" thing. If one is going out of one's head with boredom? One can check it out and see.
Again, I truly enjoyed the "Merry Oldsmobile" piece. While it was playing in the earphones, I was listening to my grandmother in my head.
Forget the last item The Plank. Not that funny not the film I was thinking of.
Instead try the story of Fred Dibnah , steeplejack who became famous after a BBC film of him demolishing a factory chimney.
When I get cabin fever I jump in and take a ride with Steve Jelf.
Jem , I haven't looked yet at the videos.
And then I see... Fred Dibnah?
VERY interesting man and collection of videos! If you like chimneys (smokestacks) or steam engines, he was good fun!
