CHRISTIE COMEDY CAPERS
With the growth of television in the 1950's there was a lack of programming to fill the air time. To the rescue came the small distributors that had good silent material in their vaults. Kids of the 50's grew up with the likes of Felix The Cat, Ko-Ko The Clown and Aesop's Fables, all from the silent era.
In the 1920's the Big Three of comedy production were Mack Sennett, Hal Roach and Al Christie.
The two reel Christie comedies were "modernized" into 108 television episodes. As was the way of the times, they eliminated the intertitles, adding music, obnoxious narration and sound effects. Luckily, the comedy content was left intact.
