Stone Age Cartoons is a 1940 American series of 12 animated short films from Fleischer Studios. The films are set in a stone-age time much like 1960s series The Flintstones. When they did not get the anticipated reception, Fleischer turned their attentions to the Gabby Color Cartoons.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7]

  1. Way Back When a Triangle Had Its Points (26 January 1940)
  2. Way Back When a Nag Was Only a Horse (8 March 1940)
  3. Way Back When a Nightclub Was a Stick (15 March 1940)
  4. Granite Hotel (26 April 1940)
