You Won’t See This Movie Ad Today

An example of how our vocabulary has changed since September 1940, when this ad appeared in print.



The cartoon advertised, “Little Lambkins,” is not about a lamb. It’s about a destructive kid, animated by Nelson Demorest, the pride of Greeley, Colorado, under Dave Tendlar. I don’t find it enjoyable, but you might.
