From Comics to Toons: Snuffy (Smith) Goes to College (1962-3)

Snuffy Smith & Barney Google are headed off to higher education in this short, carrying a 1963 copyright, but set a year prior.

In "Snuffy Goes to College", Snuffy (Paul Frees) receives a letter from Backwards University, which was originally mailed in 1929. Barney (Frees) reads the letter, and so has to accompany Snuffy and his wife, Loweezie. Chaos, as you would expect, ensues.

With colleges starting a new season next week, what better time than now for some academic nonsense?

No rating. I have no memory of seeing this one.
