Tom & Jerry Cartoon showing NYC in the 1940's featuring subway and GCT.

Recommended Posts

Little treat for those of you wondering what NYC looked in around 1945 as World War II was ending. Here great video from Youtube i found from "Tom and Jerry' short movies i found. It was shown(still occasionaly shown on either the Cartoon Network or Boomerang/Cartoon network 2)on Ch. 11-NYC in 1970/80's when i was a young lad.

This is my Easter/Passover Holiday gift to all of the boards who celebrate it.

That song at the 5 minute mark sounds like something Chet Atkins or Les Paul would play.

The NYC Grand Central one, (first video) is really cool, what an accurate description of NYC at that time.

My grandfather who was born in 1934 tells me stories of how when he went to the movies it was a 5 hour event. You saw comedies, like Tom and Jerry or the Little rascals, vaudville, a full length movie, and more. I wish I could experience the 1940's, even though WWII was going on...

100% agreed. Those cartoons could be funny without even having the characters speak. I'll still laugh out loud at them when they're on. Wiley Coyote and the Road Runner are some of the funniest cartoons ever.
