I have a Pink Panther cartoon from Walton that has perfect color because it was printed on AGFA stock. I was wondering how common Walton prints are where their color is fine. I imagine that other stocks were used by the printing lab(s). Was the Walton Logo always at the end of a film? Or was it also at the start on say a feature release? I ask because the Head Leader is gone from the cartoon but the original credits are all there.

A lot of their last releases were on Agfa stock and the colours have held up very well. The Walton logo was not always at the start of their films, but almost all films had the logo at the end. Not too sure about features as I do not have any.

Many early ones were on Fuji stock and still look good, though a Dastardly & Mutley cartoon I have (my first colour/sound purchase) is on 3M stock and not so good 40+ years later.
As I put in another thread I have the promo for Capricorn One both in silent (a test print bought when Walton was closing) on late Fuji and sound on Agfa - there is very little if anything between them in colour.
