Forgotten 1930s Cartoon Stars Now Graffiti On Canadian Wall

Forgotten 1930s Cartoon Stars Now Graffiti On Canadian Wall

Now we know where 2D animation is hiding. 
Someone up in Montreal likes their rubber hose, stretch and squash animation with a side of fries. Animation Scoop reader Will Mendes, who works in Montreal, noticed something very specific when he visited a McDonalds on Saint Catharine Street the other day. 

“I saw an entire wall of a building covered in Bosko graffiti.  You can imagine my surprise. I’ve sent some pictures I took of the mural,” says Mendes.  “I also took a video.  You can’t see it from the pictures, but an older rendition of Betty Boop is on the far right side. The mural is located on Saint Catharine Street, not too far from the Berri-UQAM Metro stop.  A McDonalds is beside it.”

Bosko, Honey, Krazy Kat, Kitty, Scrappy and Betty Boop are there. Harman-Ising, Dick Huemer, Ben Harrison and Max Fleischer would be proud.  Check the video below to see the entire wall.
