Flip The Frog in Fiddlesticks

Flip the Frog was created by Ub Iwerks in 1930 and the cartoon Fiddlesticks was Flip’s debut. If the style looks and feels familiar it’s because Ub Iwerks was the creator of Mickey Mouse and set the tone for all early Disney animation.

Besides the pedigree, this animation itself was the first sound and color animation when it was released in August 1930.
