Toonerville’s Fire Brigade


Magic Lantern advertising slide

The Trolley “Skipper” is also Toonerville’s volunteer fire chief, but  when the alarm is sounded he and his cronies have to consult the instruction book to find the best way to put out the fire. The house is nearly destroyed by the time they get to work. The status and condition of this film are unknown as it in a private collection. The last information available was that the film was still on nitrate and had not been copied or conserved. Considering the old adage that “nitrate won’t wait,” it is possible that the film has been lost. The Betzwood Archive holds an original hand-tinted magic lantern advertising slide for the film.
