Here we go with another WTF!? Wednesday! Tonight's featurette is what you can find if you do an internet search for 'bizarre cartoons!" "The Trouble Shooter" is at the top of the list, and as far as I'm concerned, for good reason! It's hard to get much weirder than this in 7 minutes and 22 seconds!

Just an ordinary work bench with ordinary tools!

But wait! When self-assembled, bits and pieces of stuff turns into our hero, "The Trouble Shooter!"

And "The Trouble Shooter" is off to do a days worth of troubleshooting, and he's going to have his hands full by the time it's over!

First stop is out in the freakin' desert, just this side of nowheresville! There's a little boy who needs some help! His scooter has broken down!

So "The Trouble Shooter" gets to work, and before you can Jiminy Cricket..............

.......The little boy is on his way again! Now what the Hell this kid's doing all alone out in the middle of the desert I have no idea! All I know is that these days, his parents would be going to jail!

I could find no reference to this cartoon on IMDB, but the Youtube comments say that his film was made in the Soviet Bloc country of Georgia in about 1957! Now it's starting to make a little sense!

"Help, Help" cries out this little girl!

So what's the problem? This nasty frog has stolen her toy boat, and now it's up to "The Trouble Shooter" to get it back!

"Thank-You Mr. Trouble Shooter!"

 "The Trouble Shooter's" cool little car also converts into an airplane! Is there nothing this little guy can't do?

Part three is the weirdest of all! "The Trouble Shooter" stops to help a young boy in super short shorts with his atomic cannon!
The kid is just radomly shooting at stuff, and upsetting all the barnyard animals!

I wish I had an atomic cannon when I was this kid's age! I would have blown up the whole neighborhood!

"Mr. Touble Shooter," what a guy!
Don't believe what you see? Here's the link to the video, just be mentally prepared when you get around to watching it! I will not take responsibility!

This was an odd film for 1957.
Its style seems more like the early 1930s black and white films.
Little dialog and a lot of redundant action.
Also the animation did not flow like even the simple cartoons of the 1950s did.

Great find however.

Good call Lace! For me, it was just STRANGE!

Apparently, this is a Russian cartoon, which make fits the odd (to an American) sensibility. The final credits led me to this paragraph on Wikipedia's article on "Nutty Squirrels Presents": "The original cartoons themselves would be purchased from overseas countries like Eastern Europe, by the Russian born, Fima Noveck, the President of Flamingo Telefilm Sales. After the original cartoons arrived in the United States, they would receive a new soundtrack, including English language and music, that would appeal to American children."
