Tom Stathes Cartoon Carnival 14: Food Fun
For the simple reason that people enjoy eating, Tom Stathes has curated rare food-related animated cartoons from the 1910s-1940s. Come and experience the latest Cartoon Carnival screening--shown in real 16mm film, with a real projector--a unique experience you'll be sure to remember!

Tom Stathes is a "Cartoon Cryptozoologist", with a rare film print collection comprised of over 1,000 shorts. His archive consists of everything from Felix the Cat and Farmer Alfalfa to silent reels from Bray Studios and Out of the Inkwell. A native-New Yorker, he turned his passion for the city’s animation legacy into a preservation mission. With his Bray Animation Project, he has worked with several film and comic historians to document the studio’s invaluable output. For more information go to or
