A reet gradely yarn in cartoon form, as a boy and his grandad fly from Wigan to “Th’ USA” in the 1930s
Animation & Artists Moving Image 1984 12 mins
Forget about Charles Lindbergh, do you not remember young Arty’s Atlantic crossing with his Grandad Bill? They went to New York and back in a beat-up plane, were held up by gangster, and still almost made it back in time for tea. This reet gradely cartoon yarn harks back to the animated monologues of Stanley Holloway from the 1930s produced by Anson Dyer, but has a charm all of its own.
