Here to guide us through the history of NYC's Van Beuren Studio in the '20s and '30s is our most qualified special guest, historian and musician Charlie Judkins! Learn how Paul Terry, John Foster, and Jim Tyer shaped cartoons that never came close to matching the Fleischers (despite being right across the street!), and how their endearing weird crudeness occasionally turned out a pre-code gem like our highlighted Halloween-appropriate cartoon, The Magic Mummy (1933), starring the pre-MGM Tom and Jerry.
