Welcome to Buddy's Cartoons! Here, I talk all about the Golden Age of Animation, which was the greatest era in film history, because artist were able to defy reality for either beauty or, more frequently, crazy comedy! The Golden Age of Animation, in case you don't know what that was, was American commercial (and some military) animated feature films and shorts made from 1929 to various points in the Sixties. This site will also focus on other more modern works in relation to the Golden Age as well as "legacy works" (Space Jam and A Goofy Movie and the like).
All of the content here is not in the posts at Home (which is for updates and random thoughts) but in the tabs. "Essays" and "Reviews" are updated regularly, so check those out!
