Best Animation Movies of 1942
Bambi's tale unfolds from season to season as the young prince of the forest learns about life, love, and friends.
The Bowling Alley-Cat
Tom and Jerry are in a bowling alley. Both spend a lot of time sliding on the well-polished lanes. Eventually, Jerry takes up residence among the pins and Tom tries to bowl him down.
Donald's Snow Fight
It's snowed, and Donald Duck is going sledding. Meanwhile, his nephews have built a snowman at the bottom of the hill. Donald aims his sled at their snowman and demolishes it, so the boys get even by including a boulder in the bottom of their next snowman. This means war, so they retreat to opposing snow forts for battle.
Tom's chasing Jerry when he runs right into a sleeping dog and the two of them must work together to fend him off.
Bugs Bunny Gets the Boid
Bugs Bunny Gets The Boid is a 1942 Merrie Melodies cartoon, directed by Bob Clampett, produced by Leon Schlesinger Productions, and released to theatres by Warner Bros. Pictures. It marks the first appearance of Beaky Buzzard in a Warner Bros. short. The title is a Brooklynese way of saying "gets the bird", which can refer to an obscene gesture, or as simply the "Bronx cheer"; in this case, it is also used metaphorically, as Bugs "gets" the bird (a buzzard) by playing a trick
The Dover Boys at Pimento University
Three fun-loving, morally upright brothers from Pimento University save their fiancée from their fiendish archenemy, Dan Backslide, in this spoof of the Rover Boys.
Yet another variation on the Three Little Pigs theme, this time told as WW2 anti-German propaganda (the US had just entered the war), with the wolf as a thinly-disguised Hitler.
Fine Feathered Friend
Chased by Tom around the barnyard, Jerry takes refuge under a huge, rather mean-tempered hen, who is sitting on eggs. So Tom has to figure out ways to get Jerry out from under the overprotective mother hen.
A Tale of Two Kitties
Two alley cats, Babbitt and Catsello, decide to make a meal out of Orson as he sleeps in his nest atop a telephone pole. The gullible (and loud) Catsello is repeatedly gulled into trying to "get the bird," earning a variety of thrashings from the casually murderous little canary. Catsello finally resorts to an air strike (with a pair of wooden boards for wings), but it's wartime, and Orson has the cat blasted out of the sky by anti-aircraft guns.
The Magnetic Telescope
When police interfere with a reckless scientist's experiment, it creates a deadly meteor shower only Superman can stop.
