Silly Saturday

Cartoons have been around longer than some think.
Some are stranger than others and the older ones now
seem primitive by today’s standards while others still
bring out the child in us.

The following 1930 short is called “It’s a Bird” and
tells the tale of one mans search for an elusive
metal eating bird. In the video said bird eats a
trombone and a Model A.

The cartoon came from the mind of Charley Bowers; a
famous cartoonist, comedian, movie maker and actor who
is all but forgotten today.

Some even believe the stop-action unknown classic
was based on the folklore of the time and could
have come from workers in our early machine shops.
The misplaced metal parts had go somewhere.

It is a strange little cartoon and might even make
you laugh.
Comments are always welcome.
