After the failure of the
series, Universal decided to try a similiar formula with their Abbot and Costello comedy features. Released in 1999, the tapes not only included a hilarious Abbott and Costello movie, but also a newsreel, comedy short, and a color Walter Lantz cartoon. Note that some of the cartoons use the Digital Video Noise Reduction (or
) process, which is hardly noticeable on most of the cartoons, except for
. Intentionally, the Lantz shorts on the videos were released the same years as feature films themselves. The series was discontinued in the early 2000s.
