Animation studio: 1933–1946[edit] The name was originally used in 1933, when Columbia Pictures
Columbia Pictures
acquired a stake in Charles Mintz's animation studio.[3] The name was derived from an early Columbia Pictures
Columbia Pictures
slogan, "Gems of the Screen"; itself a takeoff on the song "Columbia, the Gem of the Ocean".[4] For an entire decade, Charles Mintz distributed his Krazy Kat, Scrappy, and Color Rhapsody animated film shorts through Columbia Pictures. When Mintz became indebted to Columbia in 1939, he ended up selling his studio to them. Mintz's production manager became the studio head, but was shortly replaced by Mintz's brother-in-law, George Winkler. Columbia then decided to "clean house" by ousting the bulk of the staff (including Winkler), and hiring creative cartoonist Frank Tashlin. After Tashlin's short stay came Dave Fleischer, formerly of the Fleischer Studios, and after several of his successors came Ray Katz and Henry Binder from Warner Bros. Cartoons
Warner Bros. Cartoons
(previously Leon Schlesinger Productions). Animators, directors, and writers at the series included people such as Art Davis, Sid Marcus, Bob Wickersham, and during its latter period, Bob Clampett. Like most studios, the Screen Gems
Screen Gems
studio had several established characters on their roster. These included Flippity and Flop, Willoughby Wren, and Tito and His Burrito. However, the most successful characters the studio had were The Fox and the Crow, a comic duo of a refined Fox and a street-wise Crow. Screen Gems
Screen Gems
was, in an attempt to keep costs low, the last American animation studio to stop producing black and white cartoons. The final black-and-white Screen Gems
Screen Gems
shorts appeared in 1946, over three years after the second-longest holdouts ( Famous Studios
Famous Studios
and Leon Schlesinger Productions). During that same year, the studio shut its doors for good,[5] though their animation output continued to be distributed until 1949. The Screen Gems
Screen Gems
cartoons were only moderately successful in comparison to those of Disney, Warner Bros., and MGM. The studio's purpose was assumed by an outside producer, United Productions of America
United Productions of America
(UPA), whose cartoons, including Gerald McBoing Boing

and the Mr. Magoo series, were major critical and commercial successes. Theatrical short film series[edit]

On November 8, 1948, Columbia borrowed the Screen Gems
Screen Gems
name for its television production subsidiary when the studio acquired Pioneer Telefilms, a television commercial company founded in 1947 by Ralph Cohn, the nephew of Columbia's head Harry Cohn.[6] Pioneer was later reorganized as Screen Gems.[6] The studio started its new business in New York on April 15, 1949.[6] By 1951, Screen Gems
Screen Gems
became a full-fledged television studio by producing and syndicating several popular shows (see below). By 1952, the studio had produced a series of about 100 film-record coordinated releases for television under the brand "TV Disk Jockey Toons" in which the films "synchronize perfectly with the records".[7] On July 1, 1956, studio veteran Irving Briskin stepped down as stage manager of Columbia Pictures
Columbia Pictures
and form his production company Briskin Productions, Inc. to release series through Screen Gems
Screen Gems
and supervise all of its productions.[8] On December 10, 1956, Screen Gems
Screen Gems
expanded into television syndication by acquiring Hygo Television
Television
Films (a.k.a. Serials Inc.) and its affiliated company United Television
Television
Films, Inc. Hygo Television
Television
Films was founded in 1951 by Jerome Hyams, who also acquired United Television
Television
Films in 1955 that was founded by Archie Mayers.[9] During that year, the studio began syndicating Columbia Pictures's theatrical film library to television, including the wildly successful series of two-reel short subjects starring The Three Stooges in 1957. Earlier on August 2, 1957, they also acquired syndication rights to "Shock!", a package of Universal horror films (later shifted to MCA TV), which was enormously successful in reviving that genre.[10] The name "Screen Gems," at the time, was used to hide the fact that the film studio was entering television production and distribution. Many film studios saw television as a threat to their business, thus it was expected that they would shun the medium. However, Columbia was one of a few studios who branched out to television under a pseudonym to conceal the true ownership of the television arm. That is until 1955, when Columbia decided to use the Torch Lady under the Screen Gems
Screen Gems
banner, officially billing itself as a part of "the Hollywood studios of Columbia Pictures", as spoken in announcements at the end of some Screen Gems
Screen Gems
series. From 1958 to 1974, under President John H. Mitchell and Vice President of Production Harry Ackerman, Screen Gems
Screen Gems
delivered classic TV shows and sitcoms: Father Knows Best, Dennis the Menace, The Donna Reed Show, Hazel, Here Come the Brides, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Gidget, Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, The Flying Nun, The Monkees, and The Partridge Family. It was also the original distributor for Hanna-Barbera
Hanna-Barbera
Productions, an animation studio founded by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera
Joseph Barbera
after leaving Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, and was also the distributor of the Soupy Sales
Soupy Sales
show. The company also entered a co-production deal with Canada's CTV Television
Television
Network and produced several shows, many of which were filmed or taped in Toronto
Toronto
for distribution to Canadian stations (Showdown, The Pierre Berton Show).[citation needed] The company even expanded as far as Australia, opening Screen Gems
Screen Gems
Australia
Australia
to produce shows for that country's networks, including The Graham Kennedy Show for the Nine Network.[11] In the late 1950s, Screen Gems
Screen Gems
also entered into ownership and operation of television stations. Stations owned by Screen Gems
Screen Gems
over the years included KCPX (Salt Lake City; now KTVX, owned by Nexstar Media Group), WVUE (New Orleans; now owned by the Louisiana Media Company), WAPA (San Juan; now owned by the Hemisphere Media Group), WNJU
WNJU
(Linden, NJ; now owned by NBCUniversal), and several radio stations as well, including 50,000-watt clear channel WWVA (Wheeling WV; now owned by iHeartMedia). As a result, in funding its acquisitions, 18% of Screen Gems' shares was spun off from Columbia and it became a publicly traded company in NYSE until 1968. 1964-1969, former child star Jackie Cooper
Jackie Cooper
was Vice President of Program Development. He was responsible for packaging series (such as Bewitched) and other projects and selling them to the networks. In 1965, Columbia Pictures
Columbia Pictures
acquired a fifty percent interest in the New York-based commercial production company EUE, which was incorporated into Screen Gems
Screen Gems
and renamed EUE/Screen Gems. The studios were sold in 1982 to longtime Columbia Pictures
Columbia Pictures
Executive, George Cooney, shortly after Columbia Pictures
Columbia Pictures
was sold to The Coca-Cola Company. On December 23, 1968, Screen Gems
Screen Gems
merged with its parent company Columbia Pictures
Columbia Pictures
Corporation and became part of the newly formed Columbia Pictures
Columbia Pictures
Industries, Inc. for $24.5 million.[12] On May 6, 1974, Screen Gems
Screen Gems
was renamed Columbia Pictures
Columbia Pictures
Television as suggested by then-studio president David Gerber.[13] The final notable production from this incarnation of Screen Gems
Screen Gems
before the name change was the 1974 mini-series QB VII. Columbia was, technically, the last major studio to enter television by name. Changes in corporate ownership of Columbia came in 1982, when Coca-Cola bought the company, although continuing to trade under the CPT name. In the mid-1980s, Coca-Cola reorganized its television holdings to create Coca-Cola Television, merging CPT with the television unit of Embassy Communications as Columbia/Embassy Television,[14] although both companies continued to use separate identities until January 4, 1988, when it and Tri-Star Television
Television
were reunited under the CPT name. Columbia also ran Colex Enterprises, a joint venture with LBS Communications to distribute the Screen Gems library[15], which ended in 1986. On December 21, 1987, Coca-Cola spun off its entertainment holdings and sold it to Tri-Star Pictures, Inc. for $3.1 billion. It was renamed to Columbia Pictures
Columbia Pictures
Entertainment, Inc., also creating Columbia/Tri-Star by merging Columbia and Tri-Star. Both studios continued to produce and distribute films under their separate names.[16] In 1989, Columbia Pictures
Columbia Pictures
Entertainment was purchased by Sony
Sony
Corporation of Japan. On August 7, 1991, Columbia Pictures Entertainment was renamed as Sony
Sony
Pictures Entertainment as a film production-distribution subsidiary, and subsequently combined CPT with a revived TriStar Television
Television
in 1994 to form Columbia TriStar Television. The television division today is presently known as Sony
