While it would be easy to write off these cartoons as low budget knockoffs of Disney's lavish cartoons, closer examination of the shorts will reveal that they do have several things going for them. For starters, while Disney made his ''Symphonies'' shorts increasingly sentimental and idealistic, Ub kept a more gritty, down to earth approach to his fairy tales, as evident in shorts like "Balloon Land", "Aladdin and his Wonderful Lamp" and "Dick Whittington's Cat". Ub also outright ignored Disney's push for more realistic animation, instead opting for a more stylized version of the early 30's rubberhose style that is indisputably influenced by the early works of FleischerStudios--supported by that Iwerks had at least four ex-Fleischer staffers on board: Creator/GrimNatwick (who often supervised, designed and animated for the shorts in Iwerks' steed), Berny Wolf, ShamusCulhane and Al Eugster.

* LighterAndSofter: Nowhere as raunchy as the FlipTheFrog or Willie Whopper cartoons Iwerks previously made, but their earthy, comedic tone still lingers in these shorts. On the other hand, compared to the competing Disney shorts, the tone of the Iwerks Comicolors tended to be more grey and goofy.
