Storyline

Bobby Bumps is getting ready for school with the help from among others his faithful dog, Fido. Bobby is the bane of his teacher's existence since he often daydreams, today about playing baseball with Fido, rather than focus on his schoolwork. Even during recess, Bobby is the cause of an incident which in turn results in the teacher having problems getting the students back into class following the recess break. But that break ends up being even longer because of Bobby and what happens with his teacher. Written by Huggo

Early Animation Takes Form
22 October 2012 | by CalabossSee all my reviews

This early animation effort from J.R. Bray Studios, New York, is a tight little five minute cartoon about a boy and his eventful day at school. Nothing really fantastic going on here, except that there were essentially no rules 95 years ago (as of this writing), and these guys were structuring what animation would become.

It's just black and white, pen and ink drawings with character words spoken in little bubbles, which is a method taken from print comics, where it is still used today. As simple as these early cartoons were, the animation is far better than the crude style of today's South Park cartoons.

Thank you TCM, for bringing these little known wonders to our TV screens.
