'''''Flip the Frog''''' is a classic UbIwerks cartoon from UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation, 38 shorts originally produced 1930-1933 for {{MGM}}. Though no new material was produced later on, the series received heavy TV play in the 1950s-1970s; today, modern DVD editions seem to have brought the series back to knowledge, if just for classic animation buffs.

Flip the Frog shorts featured many tropes that may or may not have originated with Flip, but that generally were first seen in cartoons of about this period (and thus are OlderThanTelevision). Many are {{Discredited Trope}}s or {{Forgotten Trope}}s. On a side note, Flip's first cartoon, "Fiddlesticks", was the first sound cartoon in color, predating even Disney's SillySymphonies short "WesternAnimation/FlowersAndTrees."

Despite this, the series was a failure, unable to compete with MickeyMouse or even BoskoTheTalkInkKid in terms of popularity, prompting Iwerks to abandon the character and begin work on the ill-fated ''WesternAnimation/WillieWhopper'' and ''WesternAnimation/ComiColorCartoons'' series.

Added DiffLines:

* AntiHero: Flip is something of an anti-Mickey Mouse in character. He's a very scrappy guy and sometimes can act like a real jerk.

Added DiffLines:

* SingingVoiceDissonance: Flip's speaking voice is that of that typical high pitched animation protagonist, but when he sings along with his piano as in the introduction, it deepens considerably.
