Public Domain Animation

Go To

Here is a list of animated shows, features, and short subjects that are Public Domain in the United States or elsewhere. Expectedly, a bulk of them are from The Golden and Silent Ages of Animation; although a few from the Dark Age have started to lapse into this as well. When presented in other media, examples like these would appear on The Public Domain Channel.

Keep in mind that just because a cartoon is old and widely bootlegged doesn't automatically mean it's PD, there has to be solid evidence that the copyright either ran out or was waived by the filmmakers before adding it here. Links to view cartoons without their own pages are permitted when possible.
