Snow Use (1929) - Short Film
This is a very early Lantz sound cartoon, so early that it merely makes use of simple synchronization, matching the music and tempo to the action at hand -- for example, when Oswald sticks a burning stove in Pete's trousers, we hear "There'll Be a Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight".

The film starts with Lantz in person slapping some paint on the bottom of a canvas, turning it over and the paint drips down to create a forest that his dog pal can live in. He draws a roast turkey then he moves it around as the dog chases after it, it just a photo cut-out of Lantz's hand, but he can move the turkey INTO the painting (achieved by animating the turkey getting smaller as it moves further into the background). The maid has quit so the two must find lunch by themselves. (imdb)

The Mad Locomotive (1922) - Short Film
This one is amusing in its early use of the rubber tire school of animation as Mr. Givny informs Jerry that they are out of coal for the train. The passengers who appear behave amusingly and when the train itself takes on anthropomorphic life, it makes its own sense -- outrageous for the day, even if slightly banal for fans of "Thomas the Engine". (imdb)
