Feature length theatrical releases were not the only films to get the royal ballyhoo treatment back in the day. Posters heralding the arrival of a new one-reel animated wonder -- frequently as colorful as the shorts they hyped -- were splashed across the front of theatres. In some cases the shorts even had added marquee value.
There's a file on my desktop marked "Cartoon Posters" that contains hundreds of scans. Today seems as good a day as any to crack open the repository and share the wealth. Forgive me for not dating all of the pics, but when I started 'collecting' these images it was never with the intent of sharing them.
