The Flipper Club was a social and athletic club for people in Dade County, Florida who were working in the production of animated cartoons. This meant Fleischer Studios, since they were the only such studio operating there at that time. Beginning in 1939, to go along with the Christmas Party, the Flipper Club printed a booklet that served as a menu and program of events. The name Flipper probably came from the animators need to flip through their drawings to see the action when animating. Only three issues were created: 1939, 1940, 1941. Shown here are selections from those three issues.
