Krazy’s Race of Time (1937)

Article 4183 by Dave Sindelar
Date: 3-21-2013
Directed by Manny Gould and Ben Harrison
Voice cast unknown
Country: USA
What it is: Animated cartoon

A vision of the future is presented that culminates with Krazy Kat taking a trip to Mars.

Much as I love cartoons, they’re not all great, and this is one of those that doesn’t quite make the grade. It’s mostly an assortment of gags about the future (the year 1999, they say at one point), and with the exception of one gag involving a propeller hat, there’s no real laughs here (and even the exception is more of smile than a laugh). If Krazy Kat has a personality, this doesn’t give him any opportunity to really show it, and the whole Mars sequence is particularly disappointing. Maybe those are the reasons this one is somewhat forgotten in the annals of time.
