The Walter Lantz Cartune Encyclopedia:
Coca-Cola Advertisements


NOTE: In 1948, Walter Lantz was approached by the Coca-Cola Company to produce animated theatrical advertisements for their popular soft drink. Lantz agreed and produced twelve of them. Released throughout 1949, they run about one to two minutes each. Unfortunately, the Lantz studio closed and production of these films ceased. After the studio reopened in 1950, the Coca-Cola Company again approached Lantz and eight more theatrical advertisements were produced and released in 1953, again running about one to two minutes each. Today all of these shorts are in the public domain.

Special thanks to Mark Kausler, the UCLA Walter Lantz Animation Archive, and the books Film Superlist: Motion Pictures in the U.S. Public Domain, 1940-1949 and Film Superlist: Motion Pictures in the U.S. Public Domain, 1950-1959 (both by Walter E. Hurst) for the information presented here.
