There are a few nice folks on each of the common popular public trackers who have recently upped similar versions of this torrent. However, the formats vary, or the sizing is a mite large, or they forgot to do the .srt file. Since I have a commercial copy of the disc, I thought Iâ€™d offer my own. A few folks might enjoy it.
The creators of the disc offered a pair of choices â€“ either rip each cartoon individually, or put the whole 17 cartoon collection out as a 2 hour film. Since nobody else has ripped it that way and provided the subtitles, I thought I would. Also, there were some requests to up the DVD vob files so people could burn their own copy, so I will do that next, also with subtitles. Thanks to the other folks who have made versions of this available.

Here is the Wikipedia info:
The Ant and the Aardvark was a series of theatrical short cartoons produced at DePatie-Freleng Enterprises from 1969 to 1971.
The cartoons were released by United Artists. Directors included Friz Freleng, George Gordon, Gerry Chiniquy, Hawley Pratt and Art Davis. 17 theatrical shorts were produced in the original series, these were subsequently featured in various television syndication packages, usually shown with DFE's other characters such as the Pink Panther and the Inspector. The shorts were also reissued on DVD by MGM Home Entertainment/20th Century Fox Home Entertainment in 2007.
The cartoon follows attempts of an unnamed blue aardvark (John Byner impersonating Jackie Mason) to catch and eat a red ant named Charlie (John Byner impersonating Dean Martin). However, in Rough Brunch, the aardvark states his name is indeed Aardvark. The ant has given him names as well, always beginning with "Old" ("Old Sam," "Old Ben,"...etc.). In The Ant From Uncle, Charlie calls Aardvark "Dad" the entire episode. The Ant and the Aardvark was also the name of the first cartoon in the series. Like most DePatie-Freleng shorts, it contained a laugh track, a practice rarely used in theatrical short cartoons.
In the episodes I've Got Ants in My Plans and Odd Ant Out, the Aardvark tussled against a rival green aardvark, similar to the way Sylvester fought other cats over Tweety in a few of Freleng's earlier shorts at Warner Brothers. Because many Warner alumni worked for DFE, a lot of familiar plots were recycled in the latter studio's cartoons. In Technology, Phooey, the Aardvark utilizes a computer to help think up ideas to catch the ant â€” very similar in concept to a Chuck Jones short with Wile E. Coyote. This cartoon also features yet another vocal impersonation from Byner, as the Paul Lynde-esque computer. Also, the last short ever made, From Bed to Worse, borrowed heavily from the Looney Tunes short, Greedy for Tweety.
There were many minor characters in the series. Among them was Cousin Term the Termite, the unnamed cousin ant, Aunt Minerva (Charlie's Aunt), Tiny the Elephant, Tiger (voiced by Marvin Miller), the faceless scientist, the green aardvark, the unnamed nurse, the mischievous dog, the anteater-eating shark, the lifeguard who mistook Aardvark for a dog (he always said, "OFF THE BEACH!"), and an unnamed bear that always hurts Aardvark.
