On this day in 1938, Ferdinand the Bull was released. What makes this short mean so much to me is that my grandfather is also a Ferdinand, and they have almost the same temperament. Although Ferdinand the Bull is a large guy, while my grandfather was also smaller, they share the same laid-back personality, always are full of wonder, and definitely not a “tough guy”.
If you’ve never seen the cartoon short, do yourself a favor and check it out! These old cartoons are so charming and nostalgic. I wish they made more like this!
