"The quality is not terrific and there are problems--and this stuff is in the public domain. However, this is about the only way to get this material and it is of considerable interest for animators and cultural historians.
Before DVD people didn't "restore" films much and before DVD and video tape (an era I remember too well) access to just about everything was limited to the point of just not there for you. We've gotten a bit spoiled and our expectations on media material are way too high; unrealistic even. If this material was restored the DVD would cost an exorbitant amount of money and probably wouldn't exist--restoration is expensive. One of my favorite East German science fiction films was restored by the University of Massachusetts German language department and offered for educational sale only for $150--it was the only way they could justify the expense."
I Remember These Films

"What a joy it was to sit down and watch these movies again. I can easily remember going to the movies and seeing these films before the feature (remember when there used to be short films before a feature.)
These movies made me proud to be an American and I thought it was so clever for them to use animation so that children would pay attention and understand how great our country is.
I could watch this disk again and again."
You can't ask for more!!!
