Today’s chess(?!) video

An oldie but goodie from the early part of the 20th century.  ENJOY!

”Betty, the black queen, is paired off with “King Cole,” the black king, who is none other than the long-nosed, big-chinned guy with the big round forehead who was her royal mate in “Mask-A-Raid.” Bimbo is the white king, and Koko plays a white chessman of uncertain affinity. As the white king, Bimbo is all white, including his ears and other parts of him that are usually black.

One of the few Betty Boop cartoons that Betty doesn’t do any singing. She does a little “Rah-rah” cheer but not enough to say it’s a song. Typical Fleischer stuff, Betty is accosted by the black king and Bimbo comes to her rescue. Most of the action takes place on a giant surreal chessboard.

Classic cartoons from the early 20th century until about 1950, and classical music, early jazz and blues, some mountain music and children’s tunes. Everything here is child safe and child approved. We have just about every animated movie short there is available on the internet. They come from DePatie-Freleng and all their friends including Pink Panther, Ant and the Aardvark, Looney tunes, the Inspector and Merrie Melodies. There’s Fable Studios, Harvey Entertainment, Henson Studios, Hugh Harmon Productions, Ub Iwerks Studios, Chuck Jones, Van Beuren, United Artists, Columbia, Walt Disney Studios, Famous Studios, Filmation Studios, Fleischer Studios, Fox Studios, Hanna-Barbera, MGM Studios, Paramount Studios, Universal Studios and Warner Bros. Studios.

Characters?? There are all to many to list here and do them any justice. If you can think of a character that has its origins in American Animation History, we either have it or we can find it. Some cartoon videos are gone forever, however, many that have that same character in a staring role are available. All you have to do is drop us a line, and we will do our best to locate it.

So, Like, subscribe and follow us and we will keep you up with things that are better than TV. Andythebeagle.”
