Cartoons as cinema expression

“The Cartoon…is in some respects the best medium of cinema expression. … [Cartoons] have a distinct sociological value. They exhibit man in society caught in a network of events…trying to escape the consequences. They are in fact a comment, a very witty, instructive and biting comment on the absurdities of Man and other living things seen in the light of materialism. At the same time they are human, tragic, and comic.”

— Huntly Carter (British film critic, 1930)
