Cartoon Carnival: The Wild Pioneers of Silent-Era Animated Cartoons

I don't often support Kickstarter projects, but I've contributed to THIS one! Animation archaeologist Tommy José Stathes provided super-rare silent cartoon films to "Cartoon Carnival" -- a documentary about the silent-era pioneers of animated cartoons. Cartoons were WAY crazier back then!

You can help "Cartoon Carnival" become a reality by supporting it here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/935171800/cartoon-carnival
