Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all my peeps.

 

Image taken from Man On The Land, a 15 minute short film by the legendary UPA studio in 1951. I had a still from the same film with a pilgrim family at a table, but they weren't eating, so I opted not to upload it. Plus, the dad looked kinda mad. I did some color correction on this image, although I'm sure that it's still not even close to what the original looked like.

 

Side note about the film: In Amid Amidi's Cartoon Modern, UPA director Bill Hurtz described the problems when working on films that contained messages that were at odds with the belief's of the studio's artists. Such was the case with "Man On The Land."
