I’m pretty excited about picking up the the new Woody Woodpecker and Friends Classic Cartoon Collection: Volume 2- but I’m not nearly as excited as the old men in this early 1920′s Jerry on the Job cartoon.
Believe it or not, Lantz was working on woody cartoons even before everyone’s favorite red-headed woodpecker. Check out the cartoon boners in the Lantz-animated “Swinging His Vacation” from 1920.
Haha, I love how he doesn’t walk but slides around the corner.
Well Jerry’s poster seems to be working, business is picking up…
Who needs facial expressions when you’ve got a beard and a hat?
This next clip is AMAZING. Check out what happens when the boss sees the poster…
How’d you like all that cartoony action? Elbow madness.
To see this cartoon in its entirety, as well as more of these wonderful Jerry on the Job cartoons, look no further than Tom’s Vintage Cartoon Shop. This particular cartoon can be found on “Bray Rarities Volume 2″.
