1 July 1957 “1950’s Cartoons”

First off, I would like to apologize for my lateness in posting today as well as my absence yesterday. As many of you know, I am currently in a kerfuffle with my tenants in a house we rent out. They have ceased paying rent in March and are not squatting. They have destroyed the house, have multiple animals and it is costing me quite a bit of time and money. Today, for example, I had to go back to the Sherriff (I went last month and paid to have a ‘you must leave by July 1 letter delivered) Of course, not sure why that law exists because as of today they informed me they are not leaving until July 20.

So, back to the sheriff today, fill out more paper work and pay more money. Then we get a court date of the 22 of July. They also have another 10 days after that to file an appeal, so basically they now have ALL of July also for free. In about a week I will get more paperwork and then I have to drive to the court office and pay 175 more dollars to officially list that. Yet, if the tenants do NOT show up for the court date and I win, they still have another 10 days. Then after that the surly woman at the court office told me, “You better hope they cooperate, because then it gets more expensive and takes longer and you have to pay for a moving company for them”.

Basically I am looking at into September with much more money to get them out. Meanwhile they are destroying the house and not paying anything. We are still paying the mortgage even though once they are out, we are not sure what to do with the house, because now the salable market value of the house is less than what we still owe on it. It is all a mess and therefore just adds more running about, wasting of time and money to my usually busy homemaking week!

Therefore, today I thought I would just briefly touch on some light frivolous cartoons of the day:

How about the Dick Tracy Show with Jo Jitsu cartoon:

Clutch Cargo began in 1959 and was a suprise hit. It used very limited animation and real human mouths super-imposed over the basic animation.

You can watch more clutch cargo on Apron TV under Vintage Cartoons HERE.

colbleepColonel Bleep was the first color cartoon ever made for television. It was created by Robert D. Buchanan, and was filmed by Soundac of Miami. The show was originally syndicated in 1957 as a segment on Uncle Bill's TV Club. 104 five-minute episodes were produced. Of these episodes, slightly fewer than half are known to survive today.

Ruff and Reddy were a popular cartoon duo:
