Datebook: August 16 - First Cartoon in Color Released 82 Years Ago

Aug 16, 2012

Fiddlesticks was the first animated sound cartoon filmed in color (two-tone technicolor) and it was released on this day in 1930, with no fiddlesticks at all! Even though it's largely lost in history, we could still learn a thing or two from Flip the Frog. Watch the film!

It’s Thursday, August 16
