CONFIDENCE : 1933 Cartoon

Although I enjoy teaching all time periods of history, I particularly enjoy the 1st half of the 1900's because you can use cartoons, movies, etc. to bring it to life for students.

One cartoon that was popular during the Great Depression was called "Confidence", starring a popular figure from the time period named Oswald the Rabbit.  Students are always interested in what life was like during particular time periods and are intrigued by just how different the "going to the movies" experience was.
