Columbia Screen Gems is the franchise built around the Screen Gems theatrical cartoons made by Columbia Pictures between 1939 and 1946 (because the animators were working ahead, new cartoons continued to be released until 1949). The most popular characters were The Fox and the Crow. Other characters include Flippity and Flop, Willoughby Wren, and Tito and His Burrito.

After Columbia shut down Screen Gems, Columbia contracted with UPA to make cartoons for them. Those UPA cartoons are a separate franchise and are not included here (except for three The Fox and the Crow cartoons UPA made when they first started).

  • Columbia Screen Gems characters never appeared in crossover stories with DC-owned characters, but they did interact with DC characters on the covers of Comic Cavalcade.
