Chevrolet Animated Advertising Films and Fairy Tales on DVD

Price: $14.97     SKU: A141     Qty:

This DVD contains several films created by Jam Handy to help promote Chevrolet models in the 1930s. Since this was the big era of Disney animated films, many of the films loosely follow major Disney movies of that era. Four of the films are very well done fairy tales: Peg-Leg Pedro, The Pricess and the Pauper, A Ride for Cinderella and a Coach for Cinderella. The fifth film, Down the Gasoline Trail, follows a drop of gasoline as it is used to make a Chevrolet run. This is truly a collection of films designed to delight Chevy enthusiasts of all ages.

Here are the contents of each of the 5 films in the Chevrolet Animated collection:

 

Peg-Leg Pedro (1938)


Treasure Island meets Chevrolet in this advertising cartoon. This has it all, pirates, treasure, a love interest and of course a Chevrolet. It is a splendid example of turning a classic tale into a commerical designed to indoctrinate young viewers into the Chevrolet mindset.

Producer: Jam Handy Organization
Audio/Visual: Sound, Color
Run time: 9:17

The Princess and the Pauper (1939)


A cartoon commerical to advertise Chevrolet based on The Princess and the Pauper. See the hero rescue the treasure laden pauper and take him to the princess on a magic carpet that turns into a new Chevrolet. Excellent animation.

Producer: Jam Handy Organization
Audio/Visual: Sound, Color
Run time: 9:52


Down the Gasoline Trail (1935)

This is an animated feature that follows a drop of gasoline from the time it enters the gas tank to the time it is used by the engine to propel the car. While this is a sales promotion for Chevrolet, it is couched in an educational format so that people get sold without being sold to in a heavy handed manner.

Producer: Jam Handy Organization
Audio/Visual: Sound, Black & White
Run time: 7:55


A Coach for Cinderella (1936)

We all know the story of how Cinderella's coach was made from pumpkins and other bits and pieces. This imaginative spin on this portion of Cinderella builds the coach from bits and pieces of nature that turn into pieces of a Chevrolet that is magically built up one piece at a time while educating the audience about what each piece is and does as part of the car. The entire story is more than just building the coach and is really a quite well done animation that can be enjoyed by the whole family.

Producer: Jam Handy Organization
Audio/Visual: Sound, Color
Run time: 9:22


A Ride for Cinderella (1937)


Cinderella relies on her Chevrolet coach to get her home before midnight when the magic wears off. This is another excellent animation made by Jam Handy to soft sell Chevrolet to a young audience through imagery and storytelling.

Producer: Jam Handy Organization
Audio/Visual: Sound, Color
Run time: 10:50
