Self Conscious Guy (1951) but first In 1993 Dick Chaney was caught telling the truth, In 2000 Clinton made a friend and rode a bike in the White House, Happy Remake of the Shining (with original cast) Ad for Watchmen Saturday morning cartoon

The 10 minute short film from 1951 SELF CONSCIOUS GUY is about a guy who tells you the horrors of being self conscious. By the 5th time you hear this unsympathetic underdog say the phrase self conscious you wish you could travel back to 1951, pants him in public in, sneak in his room at night an whisper in his sleeping ear; they are not laughing with you, they are laughing at you; you should take a bottle of Mom's "diet" pills, drink a jug of granny's special "tonic", swipe dad's car  and drive over a freshly frozen lake; it is the only way you will get over your self consciousness. He is not easy to root for.
SELF CONSCIOUS GUY (1951)

A hard to believe compilation: In 1993 Dick Chaney was caught telling the truth, In 2000 Clinton made a friend and rode a bike in the White House, Happy Remake of the Shining (with original cast) Ad for Watchmen Saturday morning cartoon. It has been a great 20 years.
the 3 STOOGES: There Auto be a Law (1965) live action/animation thing is just the wort thing to ever have the boys name on it. I have no idea where they found the 3rd Curly (Joe DeRita) but he was apparently a guy who showed up with his own car and chipped in for the film stock. He had zero comedic timing.

LIVE ACTION! Barney Google and Snuffy Smith in Hillbilly Blitzkrieg and the return of Professor Weirdo BONUS: Bugs Bunny in All This and Rabbit Stew (You will never find this one in a WB DVD box set)

But first this ad
Why don't they make everything out of unbreakable wood pulp?


If there were a film vault at Guantánamo Bay
This film would be wrongfully detained there and not even the ACLU or United Nations would care. This is a very silly movie, and it has no moments. If you like B-comedies this is a "Z". It starts with Snuffy Smith and Barney Google trying to outwit a bunch of spies who are after the Army's secret weapon, and from that premise it just continues to get less plausible as it goes along. Comedy veteran Edgar Kennedy plays Snuffy's long-suffering sergeant, and gives his usual good performance. The "Hillbilly Blitzkrieg" would never have struck fear into the Axis, and you would have been on their side if they were fighting this film.

Professor Weirdo is back, same K-Mart smoking jacket, same shirt, shoes and pants (new hat) but he is performing a new kind of magic this go around; he's a lip syncing god and his song is Felin' Like a Woman!
You're welcome

Bugs Bunny in All This and Rabbit Stew
You just have to watch this. I believe Little Black Sambo saw this and thought "Christ, at least they don't treat me like this poor bastard!"
