CELEBRITY PRODUCTIONS

Celebrity Productions was the animation studio owned by Ub Iwerks after his break from Disney. With the backing of Pat Powers, Celebrity turned out cartoons from 1930 until 1936.

The first cartoons that was produced by Celebrity was a series for MGM called Flip the Frog, which was MGM's first sound cartoon. The first cartoon that Ub Iwerks made for the series was called Fiddlesticks, which was released on August 16, 1930, and was also the first color sound cartoon ever made. Fiddlesticks was made in two-color Technicolor. The rest of the Flip series were made in black and white, except for Techno-Cracked in 1933.

Celebrity also produced a second series for MGM called Willie Whopper. It wasn't as popular as the Flip the Frog series and was only produced in 1933 and 1934.
