There are a number of reasons I wanted to share this
(it ran this morning on Toon In With Me on me.tv) and some of them are about Maisie's time management skills
She gives herself five minutes to get ready for work and get to work. There's a family member who would have enjoyed this cartoon this morning, but she gives herself five minutes as well, so she didn't have the time.
the clock a few minutes until
the office job she's going to
an editorial comment about women's makeup
She's going to get that bus
while it careens out of reach
she gets it, just in time for it to stop and her to pay the fare
Cram into the elevator
and make it with no time to spare
some outlandish examples of hats
the hat she came in with, with a blue bow
chapeau a la mode
the latest from Paree
the droopy ear
the Princess Eugenie's convertible snood
A night in Venice
The ship hat we have covered before, but a short digression:
and a modern day maker
one more from them on Etsy
Back to our motion picture
the garden party hat
the perfect model 36
and more of them are about the stereotypes of hat makers
we alert the workroom below
I need to make a GIF of this
each in their padded, numbered cell
Number 36 is summoned from his padded cell
there is enough queer bating coding in this sequence to turn your stomach
of course she loves it
and she buys it. In 1940, $1.98 would be $41.98 today
A parade of hats
A mob of hats
at the end, the narrator asks us to pity the "once happy carefree normal men"
(now reduced to stereotypes of nonconforming individuals) now hat designers. the shame!
Yes, one has a mohawk. In 1940
we end on the cat spitting at Maisie in her hat
Comments online about this mention that the discovery that mercury (used in the manufacture of felt hats) destroyed the brain happened in 1941, the year after this cartoon was made.
I don't think it would have changed the tone: women are foolish and hat designers are queer-coded lunatics.
Personally, I'd go for A Night In Venice
