About this title


Animated cartoons are part of a multi-billion dollar mass communications industry that began shortly before the turn of the 20th century. The first cartoons appeared almost with the birth of the film industry. Beginning with the late 1920s, cartoon shorts appeared in almost every double feature. But by the late 1960s, the major studios had eliminated the theatrical cartoon shorts, only to resurrect them for a younger television audience. Cartoon Monickers is the story not only of cartoons, but of the film and television industries, and American social values.

Store Description

The story has it that a man from Boston, in trying to hide out from his wife, came to a beautiful place by a river in Western Massachusetts. He thought this was the end of the earth and his wife would not find him here. He named this place Zoar because it was mentioned in the Bible and it was the last letter in the alphabet. It was the last place in the world where she would look. Located on the banks of the beautiful Deerfield River in Charlemont, MA. You can reach the store by coming north or south on Route 91. Take exit 26 to Rt.2W. Follow Rt.2W for about 18 miles. You will pass through the center of Charlemont. Keep going west through 2 "S" curves. At the end of the second "S" curve you will come to bridge with an indian head on it. Take the right turn just before the bridge (Zoar Road) and go 2 miles. After you pass a big grey wall on the right you will see a house on the left right after the wall. It's a White house with a red barn.
