School Days (1932)

by Nicholas Sammond

Flip the Frog was a series animated by Ub Iwerks after he set up his own Iwerks Studio. School Days features Flip trying to prevent his dog from coming to school with him. His dog eventually comes all the way to school, however, wreaking havoc in the classroom by chasing a skunk in. Everyone runs from the classroom, ending the school day early. The animation shows Iwerks' preoccupation with animating the inanimate, and with coordinating sound with animation, producing silly music and dance numbers almost with more focus than on actual "gags". For example, the dancing teacher, singing students and truly musical interruptions of Flip's dog.
