Olaf Uses a
Stereoscope and Summer Stereocards in Once Upon
a Snowman Cartoon Short on Disney+
Frozen's goofy snowman Olaf and
his love of the summer season stumbled onto the
big screen and into fan's hearts back in 2013
with the first Frozen film. Now, he stars
in his own short on Disney+, Once Upon a Snowman.
Olaf's origins and how he came to be fascinated
by summer is the basis of the comedic short. It
starts at the moment he was brought to life during
Elsa's iconic Let it Go musical number.
Olaf discovers Wandering Oaken's
Trading Post where he meets Oaken and tells him
he wants a nose. Since he just sold his last carrots
to Anna, Oaken begins sticking other into Olaf's
face. The items range from a flag, a paddle ball
toy, a snow globe, a bottle of mysterious green
liquid, a toilet plunger, a hair comb and a fish
before finally fitting him with a stereocard viewer.
The viewer contains stereocards of colorful pictures
of summer flowers, blue skies, sandy beaches and
buzzing bees. His In Summer song starts
playing in the background. As Olaf falls over
in amazement and delight he tells Oaken, "I've
never identified with anything so much in my whole
life! It's like snowmen and summer just... belong
Of course, being made of snow, it's
not a good match for Olaf's obsession being summertime.
Olaf's first meeting with Anna, Kristoff and Sven
leads to his infamous summer song. The summer
obsession is ironic but hilarious and the cartoon
short strives to give a logical and funny explanation
for Olaf's love of all things summer.

and the Beanstalk Kickstarter Campaign Will Restore
Abbott and Costello Meet the Creature from the
Black Lagoon TV Footage
A Kickstarter campaign is underway to restore
Abbott and Costello's first color feature Jack
and the Beanstalk. In addition, the project
will restore the Feb, 21, 1954 Colgate Comedy
Hour sketch where they do the moving candle routine.
Later in the scene, Glenn Strange appears as the
Frankenstein Monster and Ben Chapman gives the
nationwide viewing audience their first view of
Universal's newest monster creation, The Creature
from the Black Lagoon. There are many unauthorized
bootleg copies of this clip out there but the
new restoration of this wonderful footage will
blow away any version that you've seen before.
Lou Costello's Exclusive Productions owned Jack
and the Beanstalk, but sold off the rights
in the mid-1950's. Unfortunately, the original
35mm master materials (camera negative, color
separations, fine grain master positive) no longer
survive. The restoration will be mastered from
archival 35mm SuperCinecolor positive print elements.
This deluxe Limited Edition region free Blu-ray
and DVD will be released in July 2021 by ClassicFlix
and will be loaded with outstanding bonus features.
