I hate to say I was exposed to a lot of Halas & Batchelor animation growing up. Almost all these shorts are new to me. Except Dodo The Boy From Outer Space and Animal Farm. I really need to watch Animal Farm again. I didn't really like it the first time I saw it. But not because of the animation.

I have no idea where I saw Dodo the first time.

I didn't care for Animal Farm the first time I saw it from a crappy VHS tape back in the 90's, years later getting it on DVD, I came to enjoy it more for what it was trying to do, certainly not a movie you would get as a kid (or why do they feel the need to stick it in a kid vid section).

Dodo was syndicated to local stations for years I think, but I noticed this one fandub parody I enjoyed...

Reminded they even aired this cartoon in Japan too at some point in time (saw an episode once on YouTube). Too bad though the only other episode I see on YouTube I could've linked here appears to be taken from some sort of slowed-down and awkwardly 'sweetened' edition that showed up on some DVD I recall seeing years ago at Media Play (not to mention the time Dodo goes to Japan alone)...
