King Features Trilogy
The King Features Trilogy was a syndicated packaging of cartoons featuring three of King Features' most popular comic strip properties, Beetle Bailey (by Mort Walker), Krazy Kat (by George Herrimann), and Snuffy Smith (by Fred Lasswell). Animation was done at Paramount Cartoon Studios in New York, Gene Deitch's Prague studio Rembrandt Films, Format Films in Los Angeles, and Artransa in Sydney, Australia.
The initial Krazy Kat cartoon ("Housewarming") was made in 1961, two years before the rest of the cartoons were made.
The cartoons were either shown in half-hour blocks or individually as features of live-action local kids' shows. Many of these cartoons had theatrical releases under the banner Comic Kings. Al Brodax, who made the Popeye the Sailor TV cartoons three years earlier, would make The Beatles cartoons two years later.
