My piece for the up and coming "Golden Age of Comics and Animation" Gallery show.
I sorta gave a hint on my last post on who I was going to do for my piece.
I couldn't help it. I had to pick him. Maybe next time Boop.
Before their was Mickey....there was Oswald.
Oswald was created by Walt Disney for a distribution deal. Debuting on September 17, 1927 in "Trolley Troubles", the plucky rabbit "acted up"- And audiences went wild. Clever, impulsive, fast-moving Oswald was a huge box office hit, but Walt's high hopes for the hare were squelched when his producer cut him out of the production schedule and lured several of his animators away. The momentary setback ultimately spurred Walt to a much greater victory. Oswald is a sassy stylish blast from the past- with a future that looks bright.
So my tribute to Oswald. Cheers, ya floppy eared varmint.
