The Greatest Cartoons Ever!

Spend Boxing Day at the Alex Theatre What better way is there to spend the day after Christmas than sitting in Glendale's historic Alex Theatre with friends and family, enjoying the 8th edition of The Greatest Cartoons Ever!. This year we'll feature a celebration of Mickey Mouse's 90th birthday. In addition, many of your favorite animation characters will appear on the big Alex screen, including Popeye and Olive Oyl, Porky Pig, Jerry of Tom & Jerry, and of course Bugs Bunny. Please join us at the Alex on December 26th for fun the entire family can enjoy — shows at 2:00 and 7:00 PM. Among the animation classics to be screened this year: PLANE CRAZY (1928, Walt Disney, Ub Iwerks) Mickey Mouse's first cartoon – Here he tries to imitate ace pilot "Lucky Lindy" and takes Minnie Mouse on a dizzy airplane ride. THRU THE MIRROR (1936, David Hand) One of the best Mickey Mouse color spectaculars – here he dreams himself into an "Alice Through The Looking Glass" situation, dancing like Fred Astaire with caricatures of Greta Garbo and Charles Laughton as the King and Queen of Hearts. PROTEK THE WEAKEREST (1937, Dave Fleischer) Popeye is forced to take Olive's little pup for a walk and runs into Bluto with his vicious bulldog. Be sure to look for the 3-D backgrounds. TO SPRING (1936, Hugh Harman, Rudolf Ising, William Hanna) A rarely seen "Happy Harmonies" cartoon. The trolls who live underground prepare the Earth for the arrival of Spring. CRAZY MIXED UP PUP (1955, Tex Avery) Sam and his dog are given blood transfusions which get mixed-up,
