Miscellenous Series


Not only were major cartoon series like WB's Looney Tunes, now NTA-owned Betty Boop's, Turner owned Popeyes and
Merrie Melodies were colorized by the redrawing process, many small series were colorized.

1930's
Some silent Mutt & Jeff cartoons were redrawn and scored.
Westward Whoa (1926) can be found on some public domain tapes.
