Clobber's Ballet Ache (1959)

As you can see below, this copy of Clobber's Ballet Ache is in CinemaScope with original titles. It was transferred from my 16mm print by Tom Stathes and he did a great job.

This is the next-to-last Clint Clobber cartoon and also one of only two where Clobber's skin is flesh-colored as opposed to solid white. Jim Tyer animated the beginning scene where Clobber is watching television. Allen Swift did all the voices.

In earlier Clobber cartoons the theme music actually has lyrics, which was written by Gene Deitch ("It must be love, I think it of, it must be love...", which he hums in the beginning of this cartoon), but towards the end they opted for the instrumental version of the song instead.
