Every Warner Bros. Cartoon 1930-1969

While this post actually spans a period of time that goes nearly 20 years beyond the Swing Era, the subject matter is worth it.  Boing Boing pointed me to a video featuring one frame from every Warner Bros. cartoon made between 1930 and 1969, set to the music of the old Looney Tunes closing theme:  "The Merry Go Round Broke Down."
