There are many famous cartoon characters we know and love, but what about the ones that didn�t achieve great success? What happened to the animated advertisements and educational films? Many of these animated gems have been lost to time, often abandoned and forgotten. Not Anymore! The Cultoons collection gathers these�rare gems�together, most unseen by�the general�public since their creation.

MACKINAC's transfers are excellent quality-- results being solely dependent on condition of source material, which is usually also quite good, considering the age and rarity of many of these private collection cartoon shorts. Their CULTOONS! DVD includes four pages of full-color liner notes, plus extra on-disc film data.

CULTOONS, Volume 2 is the obvious supplement to this collection.

PROGRAM LIST for "Cultoons! Ads and Oddities"--
MENDELSSOHN'S SPRING SONG (1931) - Made in two-strip Brewstercolor process. Derivative of Disney's "Silly Symphony" series.
MONKEYDOODLE (1931) - Reconstructed from four source films of varying quality. Highly detailed artwork.
THE HOBO HERO (1935) - Piccolo Pete hitches rides on trains. He rescues a trapped dog.
KOOL PENGUINS (1935) - Animated cigarette commercial shown in theaters during evening hours.
WONDER BAKERS AT THE WORLD'S FAIR (1939) - Fragments of a short used at the New York World's Fair to promote Slo-Baked Wonder Bread.
FORD COMMERCIALS (1950) - Four commercials written and designed by Dr. Seuss.
ANIMATED THEATRICAL COMMERCIALS (1940-41) - These Technicolor ads for Coca-Cola (Pebble Punch), Shell Oil (Cops And Robbers/A Squirt In Time/The Oilympic Games Endurance Relay) and Brookfield Butter (A Date With Kate) run somewhat over a minute each.
KORN PLASTERED IN AFRICA (1931) - Overly-surreal short starred host of a long-ago children's radio program.
PM PICNIC (1948) - Color cartoon spot for PM's Whiskey featured cute little woodland critters.
TODDY COMMERCIALS (1950/52) - Short ads for a chocolate drink are in rather poor condition.

Just got this over the weekend and am still watching it and loving it! The quality is really good and these are some oddball selections for sure, but odd in a good way!Really am loving what I've seen so far and am in the process of getting all the golden age titles for my collection.When it comes to commentaries, even with much loved movies, they aggravate me, either the cast or directors are so full of themselves and keep boasting about different things they did that noone has done, yadda, yadda, yadda, or the cast sound depressed and either didn't want to be there or are high.The commentators talking about the toons are just normal guys,you can tell they love the films they are watching.Not a snooty critic type among them, in fact they actually make watching the toons more fun.

This DVD includes some very rare cartoons. I have gotten hours of enjoyment out of the PM Whiskey forest animal cartoon alone.

Buy this set! It is from a great company named Thunderbean and Mackinac Media. Transfers are great, the commentary is joyful, and the booklet is great to have with it, too! I think the best short in this set is the Spring song by Cy Young. The transfer is so good, but splicy, and the color is popping good. Plus, that cartoon will be available in HD in an upcoming set that's Blu-ray. That set will also be from Thunderbean. Another good cartoon was Monkey Doodle, which had a very good transfer. Also, if you get this set, you couldn't resist but to replay this commericial, which advertises Wonder Bread. Not really like commercials from now. It is actually a commercial that you can sit down and watch like a show. The transfer is very great, too. So, if you want this dvd set, don't hesitate. It's great. Go and but it right now. I highly recommend it.

An amazing set!Evreything about this set is awesome!Even the commercials! I recommend this set to any cartoon lover.I'll Go over the toons with a breif opinion of them:

MENDELSSOHN'S SPRING SONG-The very detailed and eye-popping intresting artwork makes up for the lack of story here.
MONKEYDOODLE-One of the weirdest cartoons I have ever seen(Weird in a good way).Some audio is missing,particularly towards the end.Very detailed artwork.
THE HOBO HERO-Cartoon using rotoscoping techniques.Despite the epic dog rescue at the beginning,this is a rather boring short.
KOOL PENGUINS-This is probably the best commercial ever made.It's very fun animation with a good plot.So good you forget it's a commercial!
WONDER BAKERS AT THE WORLDS FAIR-Not much to say about this one,but it gets me hungry for wonder bread.
FORD ANIMATED COMMERCIALS-Ford commercials by Dr. Seuss. Not as good as Kool Penguins,but still fun commercials.
SHELL OIL/BROOKFIELD BUTTER/COCA COLA COMMERCIALS-5 commercials for the 3 products.Shell Oil commercials seem to be in a series,with 3 commercials.There are the other oil,who are a menace to the car,and Shell Oil,witch saves the car when the other oil is around.Fun animation.The Brookfield Butter commercial is ok.Not very much to it.Finnaly,The Coca-Cola Commercial is about a gypsy creating a drink with pebbles.Intresting commercial.
KORN PLASTERED IN AFRICA-VERY Wacky cartoon featuring Uncle Don in Africa.Very fun to watch especially the Cannibal chase at the end.
PM PICNIC-One of the weirdest cartoons ever.Cute little woodland critters advertising for PM Hard Whiskey?What?
TODDY COMMERCIALS-Ads for the original chocolate drink.Short but sweet.Fun to watch.
