Description by

Film producer Amadee J. Van Beuren partnered with legendary animator Paul Terry in 1920 to create their Aesop's Fables cartoons. In 1929, Terry quit to go on his own, and the Van Beuren Studio was born. The nineteen rare cartoons in this collection were produced between 1928 and 1933. In 1929 John Foster headed animation and with bandleader Gene Rodemich handling sound recording and synchronization, the studio churned out scores of classic Aesop's Fables cartoons until 1936, when they could no longer compete with industry giant, Disney, for distribution.
