LACMA Screening- Update

If you live in the LA area and want to drop a comment in my second LACMA covering post, the signature drive is still open- but I have something to tell you.

Unless Jerry brings me more updates in the next 15 minutes, I am going to be hitting the hay soon since I live in EST time zone.

Tommorow- Did the executives like it? And some surprises too! Did we get an audience. The post-screening coverage begins tommorow morning.

Updates on LACMA's Classic Paramount Cartoon screening

Welcome back to Classic Paramount Cartoons' coverage of the LACMA Paramount Animation screening. We need more seats. If you're in LA, and all you're doing is banging your paddleball wondering what to do, 5 bucks is all you need if you want to show up at 9 pm PST for a bunch of Paramount oldies. If you're also a South Park fan, show up earlier for an addition $5 for the feautre, "South Park: Bigger Longer And Uncut".

While the feature did fine of course, we need more people......If you want Paramount cartoons played on your DVD player or TV, or an official YouTube channel with better quality copies of stuff you can't find on public domain videos, please attend the screening.

Anyways, it looks like some great Paramount cartoons will be shown. And don't worry, nothing un-PC will be shown like the "Jasper" series.

If one person is committed to attending in the comments section from the LA area by 9 pm PST/11, I will post the opening/closing titles to a cartoon I hinted earlier, usually seen in Eastmancolor on an NTA print or with fake inserted Paramount logos, but in gorgeous 35mm Teechnicolor with original Paramount opening/closing logos, subject to Jerry Beck's permission.

Paramount cartoons at LACMA


Your pal ParamountCartoons here covering very briefly for the LACMA screening of Paramount cartoons at 9 pm PST following SOUTH PARK: BIGGER, LONGER AND UNCUT. Why is it so important? Since current Paramount Pictures execs will be seeing how well it does with an audience, which MAY influence their decision for a proper restoration for the home and digital market, specfically the DVD and Blu-ray.

Rumor has it the hardest-to-find theatrical print being shown is the pilot of the ultimate fall-holiday crossbreed of Gus, Fernidad the Bull, and Superman. Hint- the voice of Animaniacs' Slappy Squirrel wrote a live-action movie about this character for one of her famous bosses (which that movie will get a reboot)!!!!

For my complex hint of what one of the rarer cartoons is will be, be blown away by whatever it is, because there is a lot of bad faded NTA prints of that cartoons, and the audio has been in those prints either low pitched or time-compressed (sometimes you'll find bad prints at normal speed, though).

I'm going to get Jerry to take notice of this post......

See you real soon!
