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.

The Fleischer cartoons featuring some sort of mechanical devices (like a rocket ship) usually were the ones that brought out the studio's best work. There's also a lot of use of the 3-D tabletop camera in this one, and a definitely non-happy ending Disney would have never gone for.
