Bill Steinkellner has had a long career in comedy, from the world of improv (with The Groundlings) to Broadway, with stops along the way in mainstream television (Cheers) and even an animated TV series and spinoff feature (Disney’s Teacher’s Pet, a particular favorite of mine). Some years ago he started buying random postcards at flea markets and antique shows and inventing colorful, odd, and offbeat stories to match the images. After entertaining his family with these musings he gathered them into a book, Postcards from the Moon. Now, being a thoroughly modern kind of guy, he posts (no pun intended) his colorful thoughts and—

—ideas online. Some of the cards are even scenes from vintage films—the more obscure the better, as far as he’s concerned. If your sense of humor aligns with Bill’s you’ll want to drop in at his site every day.

    As a small child my parents took me to the drive in to see any cartoons, one I saw and never forgot and don['t remember the name. I'm hopping by giving you a description that you will know, also I'm older than Mr. Maltin. The movie is based in the orient a witch destroys the small town the price ridding a white horse states he will save the village, the most interesting is a small boy goes up the mountain to study with the great wizard, the boy always has to get water, one day the wizard goes off and the bay uses the magic wand and causes the broom and buckets of water to get out of control the same as in fantasia. this movie was out first. I hope you can help if not thank you anyway
