Cartoon Roots: Halloween Haunts

Cartoons On Film's *surprise* seasonal release is now available for pre-order! We proudly present Cartoon Roots: Halloween Haunts (Blu-ray/DVD Combo). Read on...

Contained in this collection are the following spooky early animated antics, presented in brand-new 2K restorations from rare 16mm and 35mm prints:

The Haunted Hotel (J. Stuart Blackton, 1907)
The Pumpkin Race (Roméo Bosetti, 1907)
Out of the Inkwell: The Ouija Board* (Max Fleischer, 1920)
Dinky Doodle in Just Spooks* (Walter Lantz, 1925)
Out of the Inkwell: Ko-Ko Sees Spooks (Max Fleischer, 1925)
Alice's Mysterious Mystery (Walt Disney, 1926)
Mutt & Jeff in Slick Sleuths (Associated Animators, 1926)
Pete's Haunted House (Walter Lantz, 1926)
Felix in Sure-Locked Homes (Otto Messmer, 1928)
The Fresh Lobster (ca1920s) with Billy Bletcher
Snap the Gingerbread Man in The Witch's Cat (1929)
The Haunted Ship (Van Beuren, 1930)
Felix in Skulls and Sculls (Otto Messmer, 1930)
Tom & Jerry in Wot a Night (Van Beuren, 1931)
Felix in Bold King Cole (Van Beuren, 1936)

*Bray Studios subjects; giving a nod to our previous Bray collection!

This collection features new musical scores for silent subjects by Robert Israel and Charlie Judkins, as well as bonus features and an informative booklet. Its frightfully beautiful cover art was drawn and colored by Stephen DeStefano.

Halloween Haunts is currently in the final stages of being mastered and replicated by our close friends at Thunderbean Animation, and is due for a mid-October 2017 release on Amazon. A general announcement will appear on a noteworthy animation blog in a couple weeks and an official HD trailer for the collection will be posted soon. In the meantime, pre-orders will help toward general overhead as final finishing costs are endured.

Pre-order instructions and notes:

To pre-order, simply send US$25 (for U.S.A. residents, US$30 for Canadian residents and US$35 for all other international residents) via PayPal to cartoonsonfilm@gmail.com and be sure to include your shipping address.

•Replication and fulfillment is expected to be finished on Monday, October 16th.**
•All pre-orders will be sent first, before Amazon customers are able to have orders filled/sent.
•All domestic pre-orders will be sent via USPS Priority mail to ensure speedy delivery! International orders will be sent via First Class. To discuss extra costs for international Priority, please email us at the same address.

**Due to the nature of Blu-ray and DVD replication complexities, the dates listed in this notice are fair estimates but cannot be absolutely guaranteed. What we can definitely guarantee is speedy delivery of the final product once it is available for shipment. Thank you in advance for understanding.

Note: Halloween Haunts was a secret project in production for quite some time. Our long-awaited Bobby Bumps collection is also in the midst of being finished and will be available to Kickstarter and Indiegogo backers, as well as the general public, later this fall. To those of you who crowd-funded the production of Bobby Bumps, thanks kindly again for your support your continued patience! The finish line is near.

Sincerely,

Tommy José Stathes

Thanks Steve! And getting it out the door wouldn't be possible without your efforts Oswald the Rabbit

Here are some stills from the collection. These are not final versions (those are still with editor David Grauman and Steve) but taken from the point at which Thad Komorowski did clean-ups on the films. Enjoy!

Duh - A more thorough read revealed my lack of attention, but my enthusiasm got the better of me!

Thanks!

My copy of Halloween Haunts came yesterday, and I've watched half of the cartoons, which look and sound fantastic. Congratulations, Tommy, on another wonderful set.

Didn’t know if Halloween Haunts would reach me in Norway before Halloween, but it arrived today! Won’t watch it until Tuesday though. :)

Received my copy today, as if by some stroke of fate just in time for tonight. Had a quick skim at the booklet and disc, looks like I won't be disappointed. Thanks Tommy! Felix
