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''.

A similar series would be started by Fleischer's successor FamousStudios in 1943, under the name {{Noveltoons}}. Some of the one-shots in this series would be reminiscent of the Color Classics in terms of production value and story.

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 AcademyAward for Best Short Subject (Cartoons); both lost to Disney shorts.
