Possibly the birth of camp as a genre. I can't think of any previous examples of deliberate irony based in an advanced understanding of the mechanics of kitsch, and "On Kitsch" was a full decade away. Definitely one of the most important pieces of animation ever made.

I was wrong! "On Kitsch" was written in 1939, I was thinking of Greenberg's larger body of work which was based on the 50s, snubbing Warhol. My failure.

God I wish we could delete comments, this is bugging me.

This cartoon is so ahead of it's time. At 2:32 they invent dabbing.

I swear I saw someone edit their comment once.

Never noticed Dan Backslide's obvious influence on the Bruce Timm / Mark Hamill Joker until now.

Also, probably one of the top 10 Warner Bros shorts ever made.

Yeah, I've noticed that. I think it's just in the color scheme.

I sometimes shout "A RUNABOUT! I'LL STEAL IT AND NOBODY WILL EVER KNOW!" because LOL RANDOM >-o-

Watch the posing and how he is animated, very similar to the Batman Animated Series artwork.

Also, the delivery bears similarities to how Mark Hamill portrayed Joker.

kinda wish people wouldn't title their videos "remastered" when they mean "ripped an old dvd, stretched it to the wrong aspect ratio, deinterlaced it in the worst possible way, upscaled it"

Classic short. Amongst animators it's famous for bringing the smear to new heights. John K did a little study of it here
