YMMV: Color Classics
  • Dork Age: These shorts have their fans, but along with the decline of Betty Boop, they are generally considered to be the start of a downward spiral for Fleischer Studios, and they are considered blatantly inferior to the pre Hays Office Fleischer cartoons, and as a blatant attempt to ape Disney's shorts, with all the habits that ensue.
  • Ear Worm: "Keep A Goin'", the theme of the Hunky and Spunky shorts. The first one has it with lyrics.
    • Make Him Yell Uncle from Ants in the Plants can be this to some.
  • Even Better Sequel: "Small Fry" to "Educated Fish". Or at least more well-known.
  • Growing the Beard: Contested as the shorts may be, but their animation remarkably improved by the end of the series run. Comparing the first Hunky and Spunky short to "A Kick in Time" highlights this upgrade.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Cobweb Hotel is often considered the scariest of the Fleischer Color Classics.
  • Tear Jerker: The Song of the Birds.
