How's it going my gumdrops? The ban on my original Google Plus account will be lifted today! It's about time! I CANNOT help reiterating how ridiculous Google Plus' bans are for regular users of their site.
Banning users for starting flame wars and trolling on the "interest-based social networking site" is understandable, but neither was my situation. I'm glad this ridiculousness will be over soon.
This does NOT mean, that I will stop spreading the word about my content inside and outside of Google Plus. Hopefully, more of you enjoyed yesterday's Song Saturday blog.
Next Saturday will be feature some creepy music. Speaking of creepy, these next 2 Cartoon Sunday blogs somewhat have creepy tones to them.
Is it just me or does it seem like animated shorts from the 1920's to 1970's had creepier illustrations?
I don't recall of any animated shorts from the 1980's and '90s, especially animated shorts with creepy art illustrations. We had more cutesy illustrations. Otherwise, some looked really generic, abstract, or were just horribly illustrated cartoons.
If there were any animated shorts, that aired on local and cable channels, during the 1980's and '90s, I don't recall of them. Then again, I reached puberty very early in the early 1990's and outgrew most of the cartoons and TV shows meant for children. Now, here I am in my mid-30's discovering and watching cartoons, again.
We already know there is a stigma to watching animation as an adult. However, there is always a justification for why it is highly acceptable for adults to rush to the movie theaters to go see the latest Disney film.
Regardless of how adult animation elitists want to justify it, most Disney films ARE cartoons in movie form. Disney films are usually sugarcoated and dumbed down content meant for children.
I view the characters and stories in animation differently, as an adult. Yes, I know those characters are NOT real people. Although, the characters and the stories DO have some human-like qualities with more realistic topics.
Bill Tytla's animated shorts somewhat reflect realistic characters with human-like qualities to them. Only judging based on 2 of this Ukrainian American animator's shorts, that I have seen, Tytla's works were similar to Ub Iwerks.
Like last October when I featured Ub Iwerks' animated shorts, these next 2 Cartoon Sundays will feature Bill Tytla's animated shorts in the spirit of Saint Patrick's Day.
Today we have Bill Tytla's Leprechauns Gold. Leprechauns Gold is an Irish themed animated short depicting leprechauns, during their annual gold-washing ceremony. They also manage to outsmart an evil landlord, who plots to steal their gold in the process.
