This compilation showcases 1950s neo-deco style American animated shorts, many of which were produced by American corporations to promote their products. As this period was the height of the Cold War and the McCarthy "communists under every bed" period, these shorts sang the praises of American business, showed happy and contented workers, and even managed to throw in warnings about the dangers of "socialism" (i.e., communism).
