    Format Films "Santa" Promotional Poster (1959). Format Films was started by Herbert Klynn and Jules Engel. It ran to 1962 and was reopened (as Format Productions) in 1965. It was famous for doing the original Alvin Show, as well as Popeye cartoons for ABC-TV and some of the last Warner Brother theatrical cartoons (11 shorts) among other projects, including animated intros for various TV series like I Spy and Honey West. They did the animated spots on Hee Haw as well. This is a rare Format Films Studio Holiday poster, with a great "Cartoon Modern" type image of Santa. Bottom of 11" x 27" poster reads "Merry Christmas from the Folk at Format Films Inc." Folded, with two creases in the upper left corner. Very Good condition.
