Written by: Randy Gitsch, Producer, Hollywood Date: 01.07.2016
I am delighted to report that "A Tale of Old Whiff", the animated, two-reel cartoon (Running time 16-17 minutes) by John Hubley that originally accompanied the "Scent of Mystery" feature in its' 1960 theatrical release, and one which was officially "lost", when he and David Strohmaier were desperately looking for it to accompany their DVD/Blu-Ray re-mastered release of that feature, has been found.

Andrew Bradburn, Film Archivist at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, reported on June 30 that the cartoon had been found and is intact. The cartoon is otherwise faded and has magnetic sound. The important milestones of this short are significant. It was the first (and only) cartoon in Smell-O-Vision, the piped-in theatrical scent process that was launched with the
Mike Todd, Jr.-produced opus "Scent of Mystery". More importantly, it was the first animated one-cartoon in 70mm."
