The Internet Archive‘s blog made a special post to celebrate the International Talk Like a Pirate Day: Pirates!. The post points to films, animations, audio archives and books with pirates on Archive’s collection. Nice suggestions, specially the animations: Felix the Cat: The Goose That Laid the Golden Egg and Peg-Leg Pedro.
On the Felix the cat cartoon The Goose That Laid the Golden Egg, from 1936, Felix’s goose, who lays golden eggs, is goose-napped by none other than Captain Kidd. The seven-minutes video is one of the finest Felix available on Archive. You can watch below, on the Internet Archive page, Google Video or at Videos with Bibi, with other Felix cartoons.
The cartoon Peg Leg Pedro from 1938, isn’t really a cartoon, it’s an advertisement for Chevrolet commercial, where A boy and girl on a trip are attacked by pirates while looking for treasure. It isn’t so good as Felix cartoon, but it still amusing. You can watch it at the same places: Internet Archive, Google Video, or Videos with Bibi, and enjoy to watch more Chevrolet cartoons.
