UPA Studio

Several artists left Disney after the 1941 labor strike ( you can read another Tom Sito article about the strike here). Some of the artists joined UPA Studios, including John Hubley, Jules Engle (founder of Cal Arts Experimental Animation program) and Bill Melendez (who went on to make the Charlie Brown Specials). UPA studios was created Gerald Mc Boing Boing and Mr. Magoo, among other programs, featuring modern design and human characters rather than anthropmorphized animals.
