“La Joie De Vivre” (1934) is a masterpiece of a cartoon

I have to thank the artist Steve Bissette for pointing this out on his Facebook page as I’d never seen, or heard of it til he mentioned it. La Joie De Vivre is a French cartoon from 1934 produced by the team of Hector Hoppin and Anthony Gross, more of whom can be discussed at this informative page here.

The cartoon itself is a surreal Art Deco joy that’s influenced work that’s come after it going down the decades but most of us weren’t aware of. Here’s it is for you to discover and enjoy.
