-UPA's style was a radical departure from Disney as it featured "Limited Animation" as opposed to Disney's lush, detailed and realistic style.
-Limited Animation- involves the use of visual abstraction, symbolism, relatively limited movement to suggest backgrounds and environments.
-UPA animation became synonymous with a more modern, bold approach to graphic style in animation. UPA used color as a key expressive ingredient.
-UPA eschewed violent gags and talking animals, they were common in most studio animation.
-All other studios were heavily influenced by UPA style including Disney.
-Columbia Pictures released the UPA cartoons in the late 1940's and 50's.
