I’ve proclaimed my love of stop-motion animation more than a few times on the site but today was the first time I was made aware of the Chip the Wooden Man series. The Kinex studio was formed by Frank and Elmer Young, the duo created the Chip the Wooden Man short films starting in 1927 and ending in 1930 for the home market. It appears they were originally made for 16mm projectors of the day but from 1934 to 1937 these were also made available for those families with 8mm projectors.
Thankfully Sebastian Oritz has uploaded almost all of the series on his YouTube channel for our viewing pleasure!
