RARA-AVIS: Dick Tracy cartoons

Last weekend I bought from the flea market a videotape containing three Dick Tracy cartoons from the late fifties or early sixties. I thought that maybe they were older - I've never seen them, although I've vaguely known that such things exist. Cartoons were a harsh disappointment. Poorly drawn and without any good jokes these were a far cry from the original comic strip. And the dubbing was done like my great-great-great-grandmother was mimicking the characters from her tomb.

Luckily the tape contained also two Superman cartoons by Dave Fleischer from early fourties. These were very good, full of action and imaginative "photography".

Any other hardboiled cartoons come to mind?
