Lafflets is a series of 20-30 second shorts released between 1922 and 1923 by Walt Disney.[1] This series was made between Laugh-O-Grams and Alice Comedies. Due to the apparent failure of the shorts and lack of preservation or publication of them, very little information is available on them apart from the names of the shorts.[2]

I think it's very unlikely these shorts will ever be seen again considering that they were made in the 1920s.

Not that unlikely. After all, all "Alice Comedies" and Disney "Oswald" cartoons were made only a few years later, and some of those *have* resurfaced recently.

Many of the Disney-produced films from the 1920s survive and are available. For example the 9-minute-long Puss in Boots (1922) survives in its entirety. Various versions of it turn up on YouTube and other online sources. I was able to write a detailed article about it on Wikipedia.

The problem is that the "Lafflets" seem to have been a short-lived and unsuccessful series. Neither Walt Disney himself, nor anyone else apparently bothered with their preservation. The titles of these films turn up in sources, but nobody has ever seen them or seems to have information on their contents.

Weren't all the laugh-o-grams missing for a while also until just recently?

I found a possible screenshot of lafflets on a spanish disney wiki (at least I think it's spanish)

http://es.di...iki/Lafflets

If you translate it, the subtitle below the screenshot will say, "Possible short Lafflets".

If it is a screenshot, I think it belongs to "Star Pitcher"

The screenshot is from Krazy Kat in RATSKIN (1929), not even a Disney short.
