This article focuses on the animated television show on The Movie Channel (TMC), Cartoon Alley. Cartoon Alley showcases rarely seen titles from the early years of animation with many drawn from the rich TCM library. Hosted by familiar TCM personality Ben Mankiewicz, Cartoon Alley began its run in November 2004 with a show devoted to Clark Gable caricatures. Back then, the series only aired once a month, but, starting in September 2005, a new package airs every Saturday. Animated shorts have always been part of the TCM programming menu, but the cabler often used them as fillers or during its popular 31 Days of Oscar or Christmas programming stunts.
