Buddy's Lost World (1935)

Jack King (1895-1958) was an American animator best known for his work at Walt Disney Productions where he directed many classic Donald Duck cartoons between 1936 and 1948. Before that, between 1933 and 1936, he worked for Warner Bros. producing a variety of Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies, including many featuring the now forgotten, Buddy.

Buddy’s Lost World features everything you’d want from a “lost world” story – cavemen, dinosaurs and man-eating plants – as well as some novel camera angles for such an early cartoon.
