Good Old Schooldays is a 1930 American film produced by The Van Beuren Corporation and released by Pathe. The film, which features Milton and Rita Mouse, was directed by John Foster and Mannie Davis. Synchronization by Gene Rodemich. The film takes place inside of a schoolhouse, and is part of the series entitled Aesop’s Sound Fables, though its plot has no relation to the actual Aesop’s Fables of 600 BCE.

Mannie Davis (1945)

Ants in Your Pants is a 1945 animated cartoon from Terrytoons featuring what they are most notorious for: cycles! And cycles of the commonest kind: ants harvesting and a baby factory! It also has a voluptuous Queen Ant and a sweetly delivered punchline which may make it worth your trouble. Withheld from television release; presumably because it leaves too many “birds-and-bees” questions unanswered for tiny tots (and their beleaguered parents).
