I've seen the original black and white "Egyptian Daze." It doesn't end with the "Screen Attractions" card, but rather the usual Astra TV "The End" with the sunset. The Screen Attraction cel was probably from another production, and mixed up while being redrawn.

Glad to hear. Still doesn't mean that there might be a different version Ladd used as a source with it as the end title.
By the by, where did you find the B&W version of it? Stathes' DVDs?

Considering the "Screen Attractions" card was set upon the sunset background, I would still have to imagine that there was a cel mixup. I'm not entirely sure where the print came from, but it turned up on the Cartoon Research Twitch Stream a few times. Here are some clips of the titles:

Thanks! Seems that opening intertitle ("Hey! Stop smoking that camel and give it a drink!") was spliced out of Ladd's version.
(As a side note, I just hope that there's more Astra prints out there with different music than just the same sharples beds over and over...)

If I may ask - do you think you're in the right place to say what these cartoons are yet? I'd love to see a name on any of these - and if any of them are ones you can't identify, maybe one of us could help.

Found these posts from Stathes' Instagram (a few years ago).

First one here is Peppers and Peppers (The Dog and the Bone, 1937)
https://www.instagram.com/p/BsH3mtTh66G/ 

Another is Bunk and Bunk (Barnyard Bunk)

The final is a collection of Whimseyland reels, for which one is identified as A Duck Came Along (presumably Along Came a Duck, 1934).

Oh, hey, thanks! Sorry I didn't notice these earlier.

One quick thing I should add: I don't think "Batter Up" is actually "The Ball Park", unless there's actually two Fables under the same name. That short is available on YouTube, and it's pretty clear "Ball Park" and "Batter Up" are two different shorts. I'm guessing it's actually "Over the Plate", released in 1925, but alas, have no confirmation. It's on one of Stathes' DVDs, however, so it may be worth getting just to see if it is or not.

BONUS: Just found out that Fly Hi is indeed not in the Astra package after seeing the redrawn (with CBG intro and an open ending music).

Moonlight for Two does count in the list as the country dog is on the Whimseyland box art, but the Astra title of the cartoon is unknown.
