August 16th, 1930. The first sound cartoon to be produced in color (using two-color Technicolor processing), "Fiddlesticks" was also the first production by Ub Iwerks through his newly formed Iwerks Studios for Pat Powers' Celebrity Productions, as well as the first Flip the Frog cartoon. Though a classic, "Fiddlesticks" would seem to be mostly a demonstration of Iwerks' artistic ingenuity and a publicity tool for his new independence from Disney, as all subsequent Flip the Frog cartoons demonstrated an updated artistic style (including the Flip character himself), contained more linear plots, and were all featured in black and white.
