Tidbits of Tendlar

Today's highlight is 2 clips of animation by primo Popeye animator Dave Tendlar, from a cartoon he also de facto directed - 'The Anvil Chorus Girl'. The short is a remake of 'Shoein' Hosses' - an early Fleischer Popeye cartoon that Dave also animated on under de facto director Willard Bowsky.

Throwaway Drawing

Something recently up for auction on Ebay...

Every so often a Popeye animation drawing shows up - this one looks to be from 'Her Honor the Mare' - the first Famous Studio Popeye cartoon short to be made in Technicolor. I say 'looks to be' because on viewing the cartoon - it's not there. It's obvious that the drawing came from the aforementioned cartoon given the subject and situation - I would love to know why it was cut. A redundant gag perhaps??

Her Honor the Mare (1943) - de facto directed by Jim Tyer
