"Joe Glow the Firefly" (1941)

I'm not gonna talk over this one. Chuck Jones' wonderful direction and Carl Stalling's music are a much better commentary! This is a rare one-shot that, to me, is as good a use of the art of black and white as you can get! I found this great-looking copy of it on a dollar-bin Public Domain DVD. It's part of the Digiview "Cartoon Craze" series, on a collection called "Porky's Cafe", for those interested in locating it. It's an interesting, artisticly stunning little film.
