Milt Gross

I am currently enjoying a great book about cartoonist Milt Gross. (See link at right.)

If you watch the embedded cartoon, you'll get a sense of why he was idolized by R. Crumb and the founding artists of Mad magazine for his supreme wackiness.

Ah, Count Screwloose of Tolouse, the perpetually inept conman. I think I a clip of this on a TV program on the history of cartoons one time. Count S. is definitely a character they should bring back.

OMG, kids, this is a SPECTACULAR save of a VERY OLD FILM! Either lovingly restored or part of a collection that needs to be conserved -- an historical treasure! AWESOME!
