Easiest list to finish on the whole site.

1) The list is never changing, unlike the shorts list
2) Links to every movie are easily available online, and even featured on this site
3) All are like 7 minutes long or so
4) Most of them are easy-viewing

The Betty Boop ones are amazing, it's the Clampett stuff that the list is overloaded with. No Russian animation at all is just a crime.

I was surprised to see that 286 users have platinum awards for this list.

I love some of these, but it's too skewed towards American animation.

What a lame list. It's a shame it virtually doesn't include European or Russian or Japanese animation, you name it. Is "The Cat Came Back" really better than "The Hedgehog in the Fog"? Does "Rabbit of Seville" with its violence-filled slapstick surpass Zbigniew Rybczynski's "Tango" or Raoul Servais' "Siren"? If you look for a definitive list of world's animation, you'd better try Beltessassar's collection.

I'm not too surprised Jumping Elephant, a lot of these are easily found on Youtube.

But would you really call "Hedgehog in the fog" a cartoon? This list is fine for what it is.

Tex Avery's Magic Maestro should be on the list. Funny as hell!

Can these be considered as movies, I guess short films?
