MR. BUG GOES TO TOWN (aka HOPPITY GOES TO TOWN), 1941, Paramount, 78 min. Dir. Dave Fleischer. The residents of Bugville have enough trouble dealing with the villainous C. Bagley Beetle, but their problems increase when they learn a skyscraper is to be built on the vacant lot they inhabit. Together the bugs try to find a way to save their homes in this delightful animated musical.

GULLIVER'S TRAVELS, 1939, Paramount, 74 min. A pioneering animated classic from brothers Max and Dave Fleischer (who created Betty Boop and brought Popeye to the screen.) GULLIVER'S TRAVELS was a brave attempt to match the phenomenal popularity of Walt Disney's SNOW WHITE. Adapted from the first part of Jonathan Swift's satirical fantasy, the story follows Gulliver as he lands in the miniaturized land of Lilliput and finds that prejudices come in all sizes. Plus, some surprise short films.

Animation historian Jerry Beck will introduce the screening.
