AS IT WAS IN AMERICA AND STILL COULD BE

This Looney Tunes style cartoon clip was released by Harding College (Arkansas) in 1948. It has had over 5 million hits so you may have seen it but I couldn’t resist posting it.  You see, I graduated from Harding in 1948.  Not the university in Arkansas, but from a High School in Connecticut (Bridgeport).

We didn’t have videos then, but we had movies.  We also had trailers.  Not the ones that go behind cars, these trailers went in front, in front of movies.  There were Buster Keaton shorts, Movietone News and cartoons like the one below.  Most were just entertainment but once in a while a trailer carried a message.  So it is with this one.

Obama is mentioned at the very end.  Not by name of course; it was 1948.
