R&TVP Redrawns - Cinderella (Once Upon A Time)

Today's redrawn, Cinderella, was originally a 1936 Techicolor cartoon called Once Upon A Time, produced by Audio Productions for Metropolitan Life Insurance. This cartoon features a charming original song, with music by Edwin E. Ludwig and words by Frank W. Speidell.

This R&TVP cartoon is, IMHO, one of the worst-looking redrawns I've ever seen. Have fun spotting the mistakes when comparing it to the original:

R&TVP Redrawns - Ain't Nature Grand

(cue evil laugh): MWAHAAHAAAHAAAAAHAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!

Today's post is the Bosko short "Ain't Nature Grand". It's one of the earliest Bosko cartoons (can't pinpoint the release date, but it was released sometime in 1930-31), and is typical Harman-Ising fare.

Here's the redrawn version (in which the main body is complete and, with the exception of the end music, comes with its original soundtrack):

And if you don't want to watch the redrawn, or if you're looking for a comparison, here's the original (albeit a Sunset/Guild Films print):
