collectibles 11 The Woody woodpecker song

Collectibles 11- Today collectibles by Woody Woodpecker Song. I am making a series of this record's history. The collectible is a Woody Woodpecker song record. It is old and fragile but here is what it sounds like from a youtube video I found. It also got nominated for best song and this is the only time an animated short has been given this honor. It's a shame it lost. But the strange thing is that Mel voices Woody despite he had only been the Woody voice for three cartoons. This was two years after that.

Collectibles 10--Adventures of Tom Comics

In Australia, Cartoons are just as popular as they are in the US. In the 40-70s, western publishing (well there stories were used) published Australian comics. They were much thinner and shorter than most comics made by dell were at the time. They also experimented with different things. The Adventures of Tom featured Tom Cat from the Tom and Jerry series without Jerry mouse. Tom might be chased by a dog or other things. Kind of like Sylvester on his own, he battled dogs and I believe chased birds. There were adventures of tom stories in the tom and Jerry comics during the 50s and 60s and these were just reprints of those (I think anyways).

Mr. Magoo PC advertizing.

Cartoon Characters have been used for PC commericals for a while. The most notable is Mr. Magoo who was the mascot for Samtron. Here are a few Magoo Samtron advertisements. These were only in print. He had no TV ads and I think these ads were all in PC Magazine

Lazy writers credit Disney

People are idiots. Walt has been credited for creating Bugs Bunny, Fred Flintstone, and every other popular cartoon character. Walt Disney is the only household name in animation so people believe every character was a Disney character. The press is stupid. Even today, Disney isn credited. The press can't check there sources and this bullcrap gets published. Jack Warner believed his studio created Mickey and the press thought Walt created Bugs.

Here are some articles that crediting Disney/mistaking them for disney:

Clarence Nash is revealed

Everybody thought he was Mel Blanc. He never got credit so the public believed  Mel was the voice of Donald Duck. The credits on Disney TV shows and his appearance on to tell the truth wasn't real proof to the public that he was the voice of Donald Duck.
