Regarding stop-motion, I know Art Clokey did some Coca-Cola commercials shortly before or after he did "Gumbasia". Unfortunately, none of have shown up on the Internet yet.

This stop-motion Coke ad is from 1953. Was this done by Art Clokey? Looking at the production summary, it looks like the above is only half the commercial.

That dog character from the last screencap is actually Barky from "Bad Dog" (a 1998 Canadian cartoon series made by Cinegroupe for Fox Kids).

Uhh....maybe he appeared in a Coke commercial or was originally sponsored in Canada by their country's Coca-Cola division.


Maybe he started out in commercials?

I asked the gentleman who posted The Hunter on YouTube if he had the top of the canister for the commercial. He does and this is what it looks like....please, can someone here provide any details about this? I now believe that this is a Walter Lantz production. Can anyone confirm this?

"Musical Miniatures" was a series of Walter Lantz cartoons released in the 1940s. They were musically-themed and there were only four of them. And no, they weren't commercials for anything. Just standalone theatrical shorts.

The fact that the title was used overseas for Coca-Cola commercials is new to me.

Was that the same snowman that was in Fischerkoesen's most well-known short?

I'm a fan of Walter Lantz's output and am interested in collecting the Coke commercials they produced, but not all of them are online and I wouldn't know where to start.

Please forgive me for the extremely late reply, and there's a chance that you already know this, but Universal didn't have their own animation studio. Walter Lantz Productions was an independent studio. As for the Coke commercials, Lantz likely approved the deal himself, without any involvement from Universal. (There are no Universal copyrights on the Lantz Coke commercials in one of your last posts.)

I wonder how many of these Minitoons Coca-Cola theater ads were made.

Good question, Nick. There were other Minitoons considered. Were they Coca-Cola commercials? Were they ever made? I do not know. I have copies of model sheets for a Coca-Cola Sprite Boy, two for Little Red Riding Hood, two for Goldilocks and the 3 Bears, and two for some sort of animal symphony. But, were these, other than the Sprite Boy, for Coca-Cola cartoon commercials?
