It that time again for the Ohio Theatre's Summer Movie Series. Which means it's also time for their Cartoon Capers screenings. Earlier today, they had their first of two screening. Even though these screenings are now digital prints (no film), they are still great to see and usually pack a crowds with many kids attending. These specials show usually consist of cartoon from Warner Bros.' library (mostly those already on DVD/ Blu-Ray). This screening marked a millstone: they had their first black and white Looney Tune to appear in the program. Granted, not everyone like this short that was chosen, I enjoyed it. I should also note that, coincidently, one of the short was also shown at Cinevent last month (in film print form, of course). Anyway, here's the line-up:

Cartoon Capers, June 23rd Screening

Water, Water Every Hare (Warners, 1952)- [bugs2]

The Unexpected Pest (Warners, 1956)- [sylvestr]

There They Go-Go-Go! (Warners, 1956)- [coyote] [road]
