How can conservatives conquer Hollywood? PJ Lifestyle editor Dave Swindle argued in March 2014 that it was through studying how technological changes transformed the culture in the age of classic Hollywood. In this ongoing series mid-day Monday-Friday at PJ Lifestyle he highlights animated short films from the 1920s, '30s and 1940s, beginning with an emphasis on Walt Disney's Silly Symphonies. What are some of your favorite cartoons of the era?

I have a collection of classic Silly Symphonies on DVD. It's hard to find but worth looking (birthday present from sweetie in my case).
I nominate "Flowers and Trees" as the finest of the collection.
