Lost and Found Cartoon: Howdy Doody and His Magic Hat (1953)

This stylish short paper animation directed by the brilliant Gene Deitch was lost for 57 years and just discovered in the deepest darkest archives of the U.S. Library of Congress in Washington D.C. Watching it tonight, I am so inspired!

Thanks to Jerry Beck at  Cartoon Brew and Dave Gibson for finding it!
