The Streamlined Donkey 1939 Columbia Studios

For an entire decade, Charles Mintz distributed his Krazy Kat, Scrappy, and Color Rhapsody animated film shorts through Columbia Pictures. When Mintz became indebted to Columbia in 1939, he ended up selling his studio to them. Under new management, the studio assumed a new name, Screen Gems. The name was derived from an early Columbia Pictures slogan, "Gems of the Screen", itself a takeoff on the song "Columbia, the Gem of the Ocean".

An exuberant little donkey lives for one thing: the joy of racing at top speed. But his mother, beaten down by a lifetime of servitude, glumly cautions her son to go slow and use care, for misfortune may be just around the corner. The short ends happily with mother and son basking in familial bliss, and Mother Donkey reluctantly acknowledging that extreme caution is not always the only path to righteousness.
