Description by OLDIES.com:

Whether its pesky salesmen, a thief in the chicken coop, or the hordes of mice that torment him, crotchety old Farmer Alfalfa reaches for his problem-solver - his trusty shotgun. In these dozen vintage animated cartoons from the 1920s and 30s, Alfalfa takes us on a hilarious adventure ride on Noah's Ark, dinosaur hunting in Africa, the frozen wastelands of the North and even the moon. Accompanied by his faithful black cat, and whenever possible, a bottle of home-made moonshine, Farmer Alfalfa overcomes countless obstacles including giant sea monsters, crooked bartenders, and his constant nemesis, swarms of mice, while grappling with the latest new technology - radio!

Created by cartoonist Paul Terry, "Farmer Alfalfa" first appeared in 1916, and had his heyday in the 20s when he was featured in the Aesop's Film Fables series, several of which are featured here. Paul Terry's studio went on to create many memorable characters, most notably Mighty Mouse, Heckle and Jeckle and Deputy Dawg.

Includes the following:

  • Two Of A Trade (1922)
  • Smart Salesman (1923)
  • In Dutch (1925)
  • Why Argue (1926)
  • The Windjammers (1926)
  • Small Town Sheriff (1927)
  • Cracked Ice (1927)
  • The Huntsman (1928)
  • Static (1928)
  • Wooden Money (1929)

Rating 4.5 A good Collection Movie Lover: from Centereach, NY US -- September, 9, 2009

Those of us who are old enough well remember these cartoons on television in the early 1950s. Parents often complained about the violence in them. As far as my memory goes, as well as the comparative memory of other folks who also remember these cartoons, what you have here are edited versions of the cartoons. The violence is cut out. Nevertheless, it is good to see the old farmer again and the cartoons are funny. They may be lost on the younger generations, but the nostalgia value is more than worth the price.
