Video: Max the Explorer

Guy Willems, better known as "Bara," created MAX THE EXPLORER, which ran for over 9,000 comic strips from 1955 to 1998. The bumbling Max also appeared graphic albums, as well as magazines like Spirou and Tintin. 

Here's a very short 30 second cartoon that is wonderfully done. It has the slightly off-registraion of color, like you would see in the Sunday funnies. There is also the yellowing of the edges of the frame, simulating aging newsprint, and slight crackle of an old record added to the music track.
