Our page for the "Goofy Gus and his Omnibus" cartoon "No Fare" lists its release date as 1948. Meanwhile, the short has a copyright year of 1933, and the "Cultoons!" DVD lists the release year as 1935.

Anyone know where the 1948 date came from?

I coudn't find any copyright registration for this film in any of these years (was it ever registered?). I searched in archive.org for the series title, and found a message in an issue of Variety from May 2, 1933:

Quote:
Conn Gets in Production
Hollywood, May 1.

Organizing Sunrise Pictures Corp. to produce a cartoonics, Jacob Conn, former Providence, R. I., theatre operator, will produce a series of 'Goofy Gus and His Omnibus' cartoons.

His partners are Lew Robertson, part owner of the Strand, Providehce, and Frank Webb. First cartoon will be completed this week, when Conn will take a print to New York to seek a release.


So it was definitely made in 1933. I can't find if it was publicly released, but it looks like they made only one film.

None of these three producers are listed in the credits, however. The presenter is listed as "Harry Kahne", and all I found by googling that name is a magician.

DGM, thanks for that info! Didn't think to look in trade magazines.

I just remembered that Steve Stanchfield did a post on this film on Cartoon Research's Thunderbean Thursday three years back, and he sets it at 1934. Paging Steve Stanchfield...

I do have a bit of strange speculation regarding the release date, though. Remember, this theory has absolutely no evidence, so don't post it on Wikipedia.

I do believe the title sequence states the copyright as 1933, but if memory serves I found a release date in 1935 ( I think through 'Screen Attractions' who distributed quite a few independent cartoons).
