Coolest Cartoon Ever!

Snow White (1933)

I've been doing lots of overtime lately, so I can't crank out new material.
Instead, I'll share one of my favorite cartoons of all time. Snow White by the Fleischer Studios.
If you think it's too cutsy, keep watching, as half way into the cartoon it takes a wacky morbid turn.
Note the details in the animation (especially things morphing into different shapes) and the imagery on the background scroll during the "St James Infirmary Blues*" scene. That's Cab Calloway doing the singing.
More about this fabulous cartoon can be found here.

*a song about a down on his luck fellow visiting his dead, drug addict girlfriend. Cartoons weren't always for kids!
