It's funny to think that Terrytoons were considered the "cheap" cartoons back in the day.
These are mostly fully animated and chock full of cartoon goodness.
I could tell, even when I was a kid that they were produced kinda hastily but there was something unique and weird about them that you couldn't get in any other cartoons.
There was even a period of "quality" Terrytoons in the mid forties with higher production values.
In any case, even the most slapdash Terrytoons seem towering heights of creativity and skill compared to mainstream cartoons I see on TV today.
Here's a great one, full of crazy Jim Tyer animation:
