I have a limited number of Mel-o-toons in my collection. There are over 100 in the original series. They're cute, maybe teach a lesson, and many of them were based on certain music scores or children's 45s (ancient nomenclature for plater style records). The animation is less than appealing but workable. The music seemed to be the primary focus, and not animation quality. Produced in the late 1950s and early 1960s they fit in that time frame well enough. In 1960 I'm sure they'ed have been entertaining for a 10 year old. By todays standard a 3 year old might get a laugh out of them. Based mostly on music and well known tales, legends, and the like they can still be mildly entertaining. But don't look for great artistic expression here. That'll drive you Looney Tunes.
