034 Professor Small and Mr. Tall

Title: Professor Small and Mr. Tall
Studio: Columbia
Date: 03/26/43
Credits: -
Series: Color Rhapsody (?)
Running time (of viewed version): 7:32
Commercial DVD Availability: -

Synopsis: Unfunny pair breaks mirror, has extended run of unfortunate events.

Comments: Columbia's level of abstraction in '43 always surprises me. It reminds me of later Famous cartoons, which I am more familiar with. "Peanuts, popcorn, vitamin pills". Horrible voice on the red haired guy. Tall is small and Small is tall. There's a ghost in an old car; doesn't seem like anyone's mother tho. Idiotic-ly bad version of who's on first with small/tall. Ghost turns into crack Hitler (complete with gunshot to the head suicide). Silhouettes abound. Not an ugly cartoon, but borderline unwatchable.


  1. The concept would be rethought, refined and (vastly) improved 18 years later by Format Films into the Clyde Crashcup segments on "The Alvin Show".

  2. Clyde Crashcup was the first thing I thought of when I saw that character!
