Dolly Put the Kettle On
A spurned doll turns knife-wielding femme fatale when she doesn't get her teddy bear, in this cartoon cinema ad for tea
Advert 1947 2 mins
We all know it's tea for two, not three. But when the teddy bear chooses just one of his two suitors because of her hot beverage provision, the affections of the spurned doll turn to knife-wielding jealousy. A heady mix of melodrama, child's play and salesmanship, this cartoon cinema ad for tea is another neat animation from the Halas & Batchelor production company.
