I defy you to count all the stars in this
I usually hate these things, these old cartoons that feature caricatures of stars from Long Ago. I was a little shocked how many of them I knew, cuzzadafact that they ARE from so long ago: this was 1933, remember! Then howcum I recognized Ed Wynn and Douglas Fairbanks Jr., and so many others that I associated with the '40s or '50s or even later? Harold Lloyd is in there, too, in a couple of places. One of the earliest Popeye cartoons has Mahatma Gandhi in it, but I don't think he's in this one. Anyway, this is my Friday Surprise.
