“Inside UPA” Collector’s Book are still available.

The original 50 signed books have been

sold.  However, there are still a number

of unsigned books left of this limited

edition (1,000) of rare photos, which

look into the artists at work at UPA

Pictures in the 40’s and 50’s.  These

numbered, and unsigned, editions are

being sold at $60 a piece, which includes

shipping anywhere in the world.

An additional idea was suggested, that

we now offer, only on this web site, a

“new signed version”,  signed by Tee Bosustow, the producer/director

of the Boing Heard Round the World, host of “Toon In! ... to the World

of Animation”, and a son of Steve Bosustow, who headed UPA from the early-40’s through the end of the 50’s.  This “new” signed version, also numbered, will sell for $75 a piece, and includes shipping anywhere in the world.  These new signed books will all come out of the limited 1,000 book printing.  When the thousandth book is sold, that’s it, no more to sell.


To purchase a numbered copy of this collector’s edition, either mail

a money order, or international money order (in US dollars,) made

out to Bosustow Media Group, and sent to:

UPA Tribute



  Behind Crippen Poster:
  Designed by Karen Reynoso from the original UPA Xmas 
  card, designed by Fred Crippen.  When Crippen saw it 
  unveiled at the May 22 Upa Tribute he was blown away, 
  saying it was better than the original he’s saved since it 
  first went out as a UPA holiday greeting in the late 1950s.  
  This poster is a one-of-a-kind, produced for the UPA 
  Tribute, and signed by Fred Crippen at the reception.
  In other words, it’s an original.

Steve Bosustow’s Round the World Steamer Trunk

                                In the late 1970s Bosustow and June Foray and a small

                                group of ASIFA-Hollywood members traveled around the

                                world, visiting international animation leaders and ending

                                up in China to meet Chinese animators.  This Steamer

                                Trunk was purchased in Kathmandu, Nepal, to ship home

                                items he purchased earlier in Europe, Egypt, the MIddle

                                East and India.

Down payment has been made to hold this item.
Not for sale until further notice.

Three Identical Ampex Reel to Reel 1/4” Audio Recording Decks

Used at UPA by Steve Bosustow, one of its founders, who then ran UPA

during the 1940s and 50s.  The decks were used at the UPA studio

as well as in Bosustow’s office/production room at home.

Working order is not guaranteed, in fact, our guess is

that the chances of them working is not good, but what

may be possible is using various parts from each deck

to assemble one working deck.  Bosustow continued to

use at least one of them into the 1970s. 

We’d like to get $250 for the three of them, as they’re a

part of UPA history, and a perfect way to donate to our

UPA documentary.  They need to be picked up from

our production office in Burbank.  We’ll accept the

best offer, whether higher or lower.

This copy of a 1934 Flip Book is available only for those signing up for one of the VIP programs.  We have 16 to sell.  They are struck from an original negative of a flip book made by Steve Bosustow as a Christmas gift, when he was working as an assistant animator at Ub Iwerks.


These three cards are available only to participants in one of the VIP events.  They were discovered during our move to Burbank, early business cards of UPA co-founder, Steve Bosustow.  We have six to sell of the earliest Industrial Film and Poster Service card,

and eight each of the Industrial Films and United Productions of America card.

All are originals, sell for $100 each, buy as many as you like, while they last.

This Industrial Film and Poster Service business card is so early that it uses Bosustow’s home address.

Your gift(s) will be waiting for you on the day of your first event.

This card gets us to their first studio in what’s often referred to as the Otto K. Olesen building, which began as a little painting retreat for co-founders Dave Hilberman and Zack Scwartz.

And, finally, the UPA company name, but prior to the familiar Alvin Lustig ovals.  This card features his first logo design which is also quite nice.

Steve Bosustow’s Danish Leather Chair

                                Steve Bosustow was plagued by lower back pain from his

                                early days at Disney Animation through the 40s and early 50s

                                at UPA Pictures.  In the late 50s he discovered this shapely

                                leather chair, pictured on the left, which finally gave him

                                some support, with a firm leather back that followed the

                                curvature of his own back, and gave support specifically to

                                the lower back.  The long piece of leather is held in place by

                                solid curved strips of polished wood.  The arm rests are also

                                made of wood, each side is just two pieces of wood, one for

                                the legs and one for the arm rests, designed to accent the

                                design of the curved leather and wood strips.

                                The Chair is not in perfect condition, far from it, but it’s in

                                fair condition and easily repairable, when needed.  We’d like

                                to get $250 for this chair, as it was over a $1,000 new, and

                                it’s another way to donate to our UPA documentary.  It needs

                                to be picked up from our production office in Burbank. 

Make us an offer we can’t refuse.

The ultimate history of UPA

                                                                  a dozen autographed copies of

                                            When Magoo Flew

                                              The Rise and Fall of Animation Studio UPA

                                                                     by Adam Abraham

                                                                     It’s the ultimate history of UPA

All books are autographed by

the author, Adam Abraham.

They can also be ordered with

an additional autograph

by Tee Bosustow

What do Franklin Roosevelt, Dr. Seuss, the U.S. Navy, and Mr. Magoo have in common? They are all part of the surprising story of the pioneering cartoon studio UPA (United Productions of America). Throughout the 1950s, a group of artists ran a business that broke all the rules, pushing animated films beyond the fluffy fantasy of the Walt Disney Studio and the crash-bang anarchy of Warner Bros. Instead, UPA's films were innovative and graphically bold--the cartoon equivalent to modern art. When Magoo Flew is the first book-length study to chronicle the complete story of this unique American enterprise. The book features cameo appearances by Aldous Huxley, James Thurber, Orson Welles, Judy Garland, Robert Goulet, Jim Backus, Eddie Albert, and Woody Allen, as well as a select filmography of the best of UPA.

Adam Abraham is the tireless author, who turned up stories about UPA that few people had ever heard.  Because of that, and his attention to every detail, his book is both thorough and fascinating. Here’s what Amazon.com has to say about it:

Tee Bosustow is the Producer/Director of the upcoming

UPA documentary feature, and was a major help on this

important UPA book.  Adam Abraham gave Bosustow a

major Acknowledgement of thanks:
