It looks like it’ll be a happy holiday for Oswald and his friends in the 1927 cartoon “Empty Socks,” produced by Walt Disney. The drawing has (not surprisingly) a Harman-Ising feel to it, doesn’t it?
Wait a minute, you Disneyphiles and silent cartoon lovers are saying. Isn’t that cartoon missing? Apparently not. News reports say it has been tracked down to an archives in Norway, all but a portion in the middle of the short.
Now if only the world could get a look at it.
My thanks to Morten Eng for letting me know about this discovery.
