Anyone else out there think TBC may not exactly be movie history buffs? I mean, I'm definitely not, but I know this:

  • The first successful talking picture, "The Jazz Singer", was released in 1927.
  • "Steamboat Willie", the first suncessful cartoon with synchronized sound, was released in 1928.
  • By 1933, the time when the silent Homestar cartoons were supposedly released, talking pictures were common, and by 1936, the time that the first talking H*R cartoon supposedly came out, silent films were on their swift way out, if they weren't already nonexistent.
  • Using their current formula, any old-timey H*R cartoon released next year will be dated 1938... but in actuality, the next year, 1939, saw such movies as "Gone With the Wind" and "The Wizard of Oz", which would definitely be considered modern films, as compared to the more revolutionary, experimental days of the 1920s.
