Winter was a time for tea and contemplation of the nuances of anime.
Now it's Spring. Birds are chirping, bears are bumping butts, and big dogs are bonking little dogs on the head with meaty fists. It's duck season! It's rabbit season! It's Research Season.
Cartoon Research Laboratory is an opportunity to consider the themes and tropes of "classic cartoons" alongside recent animation that has absorbed their influence.
April's theme was "Night in the Store."
Cartoon Research Lab is also an opportunity to enjoy Surrealist breakfast food and lots of coffee amongst other scholars of the medium.
