Mary And Gretel (1916 or 1917)

Here is a fairly short animated fantasy feature from either 1916 or 1917 depending on the source you consult.  This has been described and Alice In Wonderland meet Garden Of Eden; and features, besides the two little girls from the title, a surreal story of a very drunken rabbit and bowling dwarfs!  This was part of a very short lived stop-motion puppet series by animator Howard S. Moss.  It was transferred at 20 frames per second from an original p35 mm print that was in the AFI/James Ashton Collection.
