* {{Directors}}: Dave Fleischer was credited as director on ''every single short'' the Fleischers made. It should be noted however that, according to the account of animator GrimNatwick, Dave was not a traditional director in the same hands-on sense as, say, Creator/ChuckJones from ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes''. While he did not plan the layouts, he ''did'' plan out the key poses, timing and voice recordings, and his impeccable gag and story sense are unmistakable hallmarks of his influence on the cartoons. Unfortunately, when he began having to direct the two feature films the Fleischers made, he had less time to oversee the work on the cartoons, resulting in some animators directing in his steed.
* PublicDomain: By sheer serendipity Paramount just didn't care enough to renew back when it mattered at least 68 of the sound Fleischer Studio cartoons have fallen into the Public Domain, including some of the classic ''Popeye'' and ''Betty Boop'' shorts, and their Gulliver's Travels feature is public domain as well. This is why those giant video collections of random Golden Era shorts you find in dollar bins tend to have a ''lot'' of Fleischer material. All, or at least many of the Out of the Inkwell films are presumably public domain as well.

** [[http://animationresources.org/story-writing-cartoons-pt-1-the-gag-session/ If these sketches are anything to go by]], the Fleischers were considering making a ''Screen Song'' about the song "Mysterious Mose" that mixed animation and live-action. It was scrapped, but the song later became the basis for a ''Talkartoon'' short.

** This does ''not'', however, apply to most of the characters themselves. For instance, Popeye is still as he was then owned by King Features Syndicate (E.C.Segar died in 1938, so his copyrights would normally have expired by now; however, KFS holds trademarks on the franchise), same with BettyBoop.
