About the Wiki

The Columbia Cartoons Wiki it's about all Columbia Animated Shorts that slowly took over the Charles Mintz Studio (Scrappy and Krazy Kat) by folding it into the Screen Gems Studio in 1934. This studio continued producing cartoons for Columbia release until it closed in 1946. (It's last cartoon releases appeared in 1949 - For the record: the Screen Gems name was reactivated in 1948 for Columbia's TV production, and today is a label for Sony's small budget theatrical feature films). Columbia began producing and releasing UPA cartoons in 1948.
