Spree for All is a 1946 Noveltoons animated short film that was released on October 18, 1946 by Paramount Pictures. It features Snuffy Smith from the then-popular comic strip Barney Google and Snuffy Smith who was discharged from the army, had put a new prefabricated house hall way between the Mulligans and McCoys, who are careless with their riffle fire.


The short was considered a lost film due to King Features’ (owners of Barney Google and Snuffy Smith comic strip) requirement that the prints and negatives be destroyed after ten years until in early 2016 when it turned up on French eBay as a black and white with French subtitles 16mm print and was put on YouTube by David Gerstein, a rare cartoon locator-extraordinaire.[1]

While this version survives, no original color prints were known to exists.
