* DisneyFication: This series was the point when the Fleischers were starting to abandon much of their earlier cartooniness in favor of trying to emulate Disney, no doubt due to pressure from Paramount. It's especially prominent in the Hunky and Spunky cartoons, which are Fleischer cartoons InNameOnly.

'''''Color Classics''''' were a series of animated short subjects produced by Creator/FleischerStudios for Creator/{{Paramount}} Pictures from [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1934 to 1941]] [[FollowTheLeader as a competitor]] to WaltDisney's SillySymphonies. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin As the name implies]], all of the shorts were made in color, with the first entry in the series, "Poor Cinderella", being the first color cartoon produced by the Fleischer studio. There were 36 films produced in this series.

They are considered by some animation critics and modern audiences to be cheap knock-offs of WaltDisney's own Silly Symphonies, but many of these cartoons are still highly regarded today, including Somewhere in Dreamland (1936), the Academy Award nominated shorts, Educated Fish (1937), Hunky and Spunky (1938, first in a subseries), and Small Fry (1939). The first film in the series, Poor Cinderella, featured BettyBoop (in her sole color appearance in a theatrical cartoon, with red hair and turquoise eyes); future films were usually one-shot cartoons with no starring characters, save for one shot that guest-starred Betty's grandpa, Grampy. Two color classics - Educated Fish (1937) and Hunky and Spunky - were nominated for the UsefulNotes/AcademyAward for Best Short Subject (Cartoons); both lost to Disney shorts.

* AdultFear: The mother in "''Somewhere In Dreamland''" was destitue, and burst into tears after one of her two children told her he was still hungry after she fed him all the food she could (which was a very stale piece of bread). She herself was stick-thin, too.

On that note, over a decade after his previous appearances, Hunky the Burro was brought back as a side-character for at least two CasperTheFriendlyGhost and Noveltoon shorts.

Compare to UbIwerks' ''ComiColorCartoons'', and of course, ''SillySymphonies''.
