Salad Days

In the Spring of 1952, Crocker Yeeeowwalczyk stumbled on the idea that ultimately defined Yeeeoww: the Feature-Length Animated Promotional Film. In March of 1955, Yeeeowwalczyk Financially Feasible Animated Pictures released it's first feature-length film Using Corrosive Chemicals in a Modern Age featuring the popular Corchem Man. The film was a critical and financial success for Yeeeowwalczyk as well as for Corchem Chemical. In 1955, Crocker floated the idea of a film featuring a futuristic bathroom to Glandul•Aire CEO Tuck Tatum– who was immediately interested. Bathroom Door to the Future featuring Queen Glandul•Aire opened to accolades in 1959. 1956 saw Yeeeowwalczyk move into the new medium of television by producing the highly acclaimed television series The Red Brick Bunch sponsored by Glandul•Aire. A year later, Yeeeowwalczyk Financially Feasible Animated Pictures Presents the Magical Merchant Machine Sponsored by Forceps Toys was put into production.
