* 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.

These shorts were succeeded by the TexAveryMGMCartoons, many of which were also oneshot cartoons, although two final oneshots were produced in the 1960s by Creator/ChuckJones for the studio while he was working on his ''Tom and Jerry'' shorts.

* SpiritualSuccessor: Many of them are essentially ''HappyHarmonies'' with more lavish animation, hence why a few of these shorts featured previous stars of the ''Harmonies'' shorts.
