* DoubleTake: In "The Little Mole", Dr. Primrose Skunk reacts this way when the mole points him to his dream castle (actually a pile of junk that he mistakes as a castle due to his poor eyesight above ground).

* SnakeOilSalesman: Subverted with Dr. Primrose Skunk from "The Little Mole". He's meant to give off an air of this kind of character, but he isn't evil and even gives the eponymous mole a pair of glasses (only taking some pocket change as a meager fee). The worst thing he does is shatter the kids illusion about his dream castle (a pile of junk that he mistook for a castle due to his poor eyesight above ground) and let him wander off unsupervised.

* DenserAndWackier: "The Lonesome Stranger", a parody of western cartoons, is noticably more gag-oriented and wild in it's animation than most of these other shorts.

* DenserAndWackier: "The Lonesome Stranger", a parody of western cartoons, is noticably more gag-oriented and wild in it's animation than most of these other shorts. Apparently, Hugh Harman made it as part of a bet with producer Fred Quimby to prove he could do comedy in the vein of Creator/TexAvery and Creator/BobClampett.

* DigitalDestruction: The restored version of "Tom Turk" has atrocious, blatant DVNR damage in many parts of the short.

to:

* DigitalDestruction: The When the shorts were restored version for TV airings, many of them went through the DVNR process, which unintentionally scrubbed away a lot of the detail and linework from many shorts, such as "Gallopin Gals and "Tom Turk" has atrocious, blatant DVNR damage in many parts of the short.Turkey".

* The Hungry Wolf: This short had some animation contributed by Disney animator [[NoteworthyDisneyStaff Bill Tytla]], who went to {{MGM}}'s cartoon studio during the infamous 1941 Disney studio strike to briefly work there. Micheal Sporn's splog [[http://www.michaelspornanimation.com/splog/?p=2684 has a post about it.]]

Aside from the first two and last two made, the bulk of these cartoons were made from [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1939 to 1943]]. The shorts were made in an attempt to find a new star series for {{MGM}}, as well as to make up for the previous failures of ''The Captain And The Kids'' and ''Count Screwloose''. One of these experiments, ''WesternAnimation/PussGetsTheBoot'', would wind up launching {{MGM}}'s acclaimed ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' cartoons. Another notable oneshot was the anti-war short ''WesternAnimation/PeaceOnEarth'', the only cartoon to ever be nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, and to be voted as one of The50GreatestCartoons in 1994.
