My Old Kentucky Home

Originally released on March 13, 1926 by Max Fleischer's Out of the Inkwell Films company, this was one of the Song Car-Tunes series. This cartoon does contain the original lyrics of "My Old Kentucky Home," by Stephen Collins Foster (1853). This short used an early DeForest sound system for sound. My Old Kentucky Home appears to be the first attempt at animated dialogue, as a dog mouths, "Follow the ball, and join in, everybody" in remarkable sychonization. This comes two years before Disney's Steamboat Willie.
