Yeeeowwalczyk's first feature-length animated film (Corrosive Chemicals in a Modern Age) and pre-production for it's first TV Show (The Red Brick Bunch) were in full swing during the Fall of 1954. An animator recruitment program began in earnest throughout California during this time.

The Red Brick Bunch Sponsored by Glandul•Aire premiered in the Fall of 1956 and was an immediate hit. Glandul•Aire created a full line of promotional items which included this Red Brick Bunch toilet seat - which is now a collectors item.

Running from 1957 to 1958 on KBTN-TV, Channel 53 on Monday nights, The Magical Merchant Machine, sponsored by Forceps Toys, was an hour long television show. Each episode threw an entertaining spotlight on a different Promo-Pal and the products they were currently promoting.

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 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 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 Forceps Toys. A year later, Yeeeowwalczyk Financially Feasible Animated Pictures Presents the Magical Merchant Machine Sponsored by Glandul•Aire was put into production.
