Hunky and Spunky

Hunky and Spunky is a 1938 animated short film, part of the Color Classics series produced by Fleischer Studios and distributed by Paramount Pictures.  The short cartoons revolve around a mother burro and her son. 

I had not seen them before and one night,  very late, they came on, and low and behold, it was a cartoon version of Sega and Baby April.  Complete with the big ears.

OK, see the likeness, this is Mom (Hunky):

And this is Spunky:

Some of the features include The Barnyard Brat (1939), You Can't Shoe a Horsefly (1940), A Kick in Time (1940), Always Kickin' (1939), Vitamin Hay (1941), Snubbed by a Snob (1940). 

And Spunky even has four white socks!
