Notes: Checklist incomplete. Cards are color cartoons, with a blue number and a black caption below the picture. The cards look like they are in groups which tell a story, with each caption relating a scene from the story. It looks like there are a bunch of different stories, with each story featuring a cartoon rendition of a popular movie star. For example cards #51 through #57 show scenes from a story surrounding a star that I don't recognize, while cards #66 through #69 show scenes from a Charlie Chaplin story. I haven't seen enough of these cards to know exactly which movie stars are featured in this set. Blank-backed.

These cards are related to the Cartoon Chaplin Unnumbered Slanted Text Strip Cards set. Both sets share the same pictures, though I haven't seen enough cards to know if all the pictures are shared between the two sets. There are some changes to the captions between the two sets.
