Old Mother Hubbard, the 1935 Ub Iwerks ComiColor animated cartoon short. After being instrumental in the creation of Mickey Mouse for Walt Disney, Ub Iwerks (full name Ubbe Iwerks) was hired away from Disney by P.A. Powers of Celebrity Productions to create a series of cartoons based on classic fairy tales (Iwerks was able to be hired away, both because he did not share in the financial rewards that Disney obtained from his work on Mickey Mouse and other early Disney characters, and also because Iwerks was barely credited for his work). Iwerks not only drew the ComiColor cartoons, but he also drew the one-sheets (and a 4-card full-color lobby card set) created to promote each of them. Unfortunately, this series of cartoons did not perform well at the box office, and late in the series, they switched from individual one-sheets for each cartoon to a stock poster with different titles printed in the middle. After 25 cartoons, Powers folded Celebrity Productions and Iwerks was forced to return to Disney.
