""Amazing American Animation Archive" is comprised of Fleischer Studios color cartoons from 1934-1940. The DVD runs 90 minutes and is presented in Dolby Digital Mono. (A boon for those who dislike Winstar's "feel the sound" process.) This is a decent showing of their "second tier" cartoons, with more funny animals and less celebrities like Popeye, Betty Boop and Superman. It runs into the same difficulties as many DVDs of this kind. Most of the cartoons have been featured elsewhere on different DVDs, and a person can only own so many "smorgasbord" collections. If you have no other Fleischer DVD's, this would be a fine starting point. I am still waiting for a "definitive" Fleischer collection that gives them the attention they deserve. The cartoons on this collection:1. The Song Of The Birds (1934) 2. Greedy Humpty Dumpty (1936) 3. Hawaiian Birds (1936) 4. Play Safe (1936) 5. Somewhere in Dreamland (1936) 6. Christmas Comes But Once A Year (1936) - 8:35 7. All's Fair At The Fair (1938) - (Popeye) 8. Hunky And Spunky (1938) 9. Small Fry (1939) 10. Ants In The Pants (1940) 11. Snubbed By A Snob (1940)"
Doesnt seem like this DVD ever actually came out.

"I preordered this DVD when it was first announced. It never arrived. The listed release date changed about 10 times over the last year. Now its out-of-print. Cant even locate any real proof it exists anywhere (cover scans, advertisement from manufacturer, etc). Mabey a few people recieved it, but I dunno... Ive also had 'Max Fleischer Color Cartoons' DVD from the same manufacturer on order for months and months...same story... release date just changes constantly, but it never comes out.Go figure."
