I’ve always had an interest in the silent cartoon era but not to the extent of Tom Stathes! He’s the author of CartoonsOnFilm, a blog about silent cartoons. Boy does he have quite the collection! Not just any collection. Ultra-uber-rare stuff that he tracks down, converts from filmstrip to his blog for our benefit.

I’m tempted to watch them while listening to mp3s of cylinders and 78s downloaded from archive.org. If web viewing isn’t your thing, Tom also has these gems for sale on DVD.
