A scene from an American animated piece called "Dudley Do Right" shows a scene in which a queen is tied to a railroad track with ropes and shouting, "Help!" This image was often used in serial action films of the silent comedy period. In this short film, a western-style hero fights a villain and saves a beautiful woman in the same situation. This classical scene, however, is marred, blurred and smudged because the film itself is very old. Not only does the hero have to fight the villain, but he also has to struggle hard against the bad condition of the film.

Be fair, how often do you find films done in 19__ anything to be in poor quality? Often right? To be fair that was age of starting animation. Nothing was bound to be perfect let alone the quality we see now a days. This director, whom is starting to become a favorite of mine decides enough is enough let's stop our current pieces and make a piece based on the troubles we have to work with grandfathering animation.

Of course it is grainy. Of course it is in black and white. Of course there is a tilting error. All of these and read more
