From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rainbow Parade was a series of 27 animated shorts produced by Van Beuren Studios between 1934 and 1936. This was Van Beuren's all-color series.

Many of the 'Rainbow Parade' cartoons were one-shot stories with no recurring characters, but several of the films featured Molly Moo-Cow, Toonerville Trolley and Felix the Cat. This series was purchased by Commonwealth Pictures in 1941 and was later syndicated for television. The short The Merry Kittens was used in an episode of The Wubbcast. Thunderbean Animation released a collection of the early 'Rainbow Parade' cartoons on a DVD in 2009. The second half of the series is available from the original negatives released by Image DVD/ Blackhawk Films/ Film Preservation Associates.
