Gung Hay Fat Choy #4 -- February 3, 2011

Happy Lunar New Year. This is the year of the rabbit.

The image is from Walt Disney's 1927 Oswald the Lucky Rabbit cartoon "Trolley Troubles." Oswald's appearance changed over the years. Disney lost control of the character the next year and didn't get him back until 2006. This cartoon, the first Oswald to be released, includes some wonderful Ub Iwerks travelling shots from the point of view of the trolley as it barrels along the tracks.
