The Jerry Beck Winter Tour 2016 – Animation Scoop

The Jerry Beck Winter Tour 2016

I don’t know about you – but I’m celebrating the holidays with two local cartoon screenings and two animated radio broadcasts and I’m inviting everyone – and that means YOU – to join me. The first is tonight, as I appear on Stu’s Show, an internet radio broadcast of media-maven Stu Shostack. I suppose we could call this a “podcast”, but it is indeed broadcast FREE today at 7pm EST / 4pm PST for at least two hours. Click here to listen. We talk cartoons old and new, and take questions from listeners – you have to email the questions to Stu at The show is then archived and is available for download for $2. – if you want to hear the show at a later date or time, click here.


Thursday night, December 22nd, I’ll be hosting Christmas Cartoon Chaos at the Cinefamily here in Hollywood California. It’s a Christmas Party on screen with a pot-luck of oddball Christmas cartoon classics – some you know but others you never saw before. The Cinefamily is at the famed Silent Movie Theater on Fairfax Ave. near Melrose. For more info: click here!


On Christmas Day I’m back on the air – locally in L.A on KPFK-FM – doing my annual Cartoons In Stereo broadcast. It’s a fast paced hour of music from cartoons, or about cartoon characters, or inspired by animation, using covers, soundtracks, and ancient children’s records. The broadcast goes live on December 25th at 5pm… and it will be available for download after it airs.

UPDATE: You can listen to my 2016 broadcast – and all previous CARTOONS IN STEREO broadcasts if you CLICK HERE.


And finally, last but not least, Frank Gladstone and I take the stage at the classic Alex Theater in Glendale the day after Christmas, December 26th at 2pm and 7pm to present The Greatest Cartoons Ever. This is our fourth annual cartoon event at the Alex – and they must like us. They keep asking us to come back. We show ten cartoons and introduce them with information and tidbits about why they are great. Seeing Tex Avery, Chuck Jones, Disney, Fleischer and Hanna Barbera on the big screen is the real attraction – and the audience reactions and laughter are infectious. Check the line up of cartoons and ticket info here.
