Back in June, Collector’s Quest visited The Museum of UnCut Funk to do a video shoot featuring our collection for their new website. We posted pictures from the shoot in the pix section of the Museum. We posted the first two videos from the shoot in the Funky Stuff section of the Museum. Here are the next two videos from the shoot. Again, we were very excited about the opportunity to talk to Collector’s Quest because they are one of the premiere collector community websites in the country.

The Black Dynamite Animated Series will finally premiere on July 15 at 11:30 on Adult Swim. I say finally because I attended a session at NY Comic Con, a couple of years ago, where the series was announced. I got my copy of the Black Dynamite comic book at the same time. I have been waiting for this series to air every since…

Fabio Biondo is a Brazilian cat I friended on Facebook about a year or so ago. He had expressed his passion for animation and really dug what the Museum of UnCut Funk was doing with it’s collection. After some communication Fabio presented his art to the museum and I thought it would really be kool to highlight his work on our site.
Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids the animated series was created, produced, and hosted by comedian Bill Cosby, who also lent his voice to a number of characters, including Fat Albert himself. Filmation was the production company for the series. The show premiered on September 9, 1972 and ran until 1985. The show, based on Bill Cosby’s remembrances of his childhood gang, focused on the lovable, oversized Albert, with his signature rumbling exclamation “Hey hey hey!”, and his friends.

First appearing in “Aquaman” (vol. 1) #35 in 1967, Black Manta was created by Bob Haney and Nick Cardy, and has since become the Sea King’s primary foe. What might make Black Manta unique is that he’s probably the most well-known Black supervillain in comics and among the general public, thanks to the character’s other-media appearances (particularly on “Super Friends).
Picking up where comic strips left off in the early 20th century, theatrical cartoon film shorts portrayed Blacks in a racially derogatory and stereotypical manner as cannibals, coons, mammies and Stepin Fetchit characters with exaggerated features and ignorant dialect. From 1900 to 1960, over 600 cartoon shorts featuring Black characters were produced by some of Hollywood’s greatest White animators and biggest film studios. Several famous Black jazz musicians such as Cab Calloway, Fats Waller and Louis Armstrong were also portrayed as stereotypical caricatures.
Our sports collection is definitely different than what most people would expect and unique compared to the rest of our museum collection categories in that it encompasses a broad range of items, including: animation, board games, lunch boxes, posters, art, coins, stamps and comic books, as well as a few traditional pieces of autographed sports memorabilia. But we like it because different is what we do…
The Museum Of UnCut Funk has an impressive collection of oxymoronic art. Why oxymoronic? Animation is an art form with caricature as its foundation. However, nearly all of the cartoons represented in this collection, which feature African American and African caricatures, attempt to negotiate the entertainment value of the characters’ designs with accuracy in depicting African American performance.
Born in Santa Barbara, California, the 75-year-old cartoonist/animator/writer studied illustration at Art Center College of Art and Design. Floyd began his Disney career fresh out of art school, as an animator and in-betweener (an artist who creates intermediate frames for smooth transitions between two images).
One thing that was really cool about the 70’s was the fact that there were Black cartoons on TV. I love cartoons and every Saturday morning you would find me right in front of the tube watching Fat Albert and The Cosby Kids, The Go Go Globetrotters and my favorite, The Jackson 5ive.
