"While a few of these cartoons are available elsewhere on more expensive releases and in "remastered" quality, the variety is worth the price.
TANKS (1917) The earliest cartoon on this colection, created by animaton pioneer and inventor of the "cell system," Earl Hurd.
MY OLD KENTUCKY HOME (1926) Quiet possibly the first "sound cartoon" produced by the Fleischer studio.
SWEET ADELINE (1926) This film was part of the Song Cartune series, produced by the New York based Max Fleischer studio. The Fleischers partnered with sound pioneer Dr. Lee Deforest for this one.
FOUR MUSICIANS OF BREMEN (1923) One of the first Disney cartoon shorts, produced by the newly formed "Laugh O' Grams" studio.
THE HUNT (1927) Starring Dinky Doodle, this short series was created by Walter Lantz while at the Bray Studio.
MECHANICAL COW (1927) An Oswald the Lucky Rabbit cartoon when Disney was working for the studio before he lost the rights to his cartoon character.
ALICE RATTLED BY RATS (1925) Live action Margie Gay in a cartoon world.
There are more cartoons on this volume but trust me when I say the price is superb for this colection.
NICE LITTLE COLLECTION!

"...and a great value for the less than ten dollars from Amazon third parties.
There's an emphasis on 'toons combining live action with the drawings and every cartoon is perfectly viewable and listenable.
Let's hope to see more from Alpha, maybe even an entire disc or two of the Fleischer's KoKo the Clown (please!). Also look for Cartoon Rarities From The Thirties, Farmer Al Falfa, and Bizarre Cartoons discs from Alpha."
