Flippity and Flop were a pair of short lived cartoon characters, an anthropomorphic cat and canary duo. They appeared in theatrical shorts from 1945 to 1947 by Screen Gems for Columbia Pictures. The antics of Flop, the cat and Flippity the canary, were similar to that of Tweety and Sylvester of Warner Bros.. However unlike Tweety, Flippity had to rely on Sam the household Dog to protect him from Flop. Flippity and Flop only appeared in four cartoons before Screen Gems was replaced by United Productions of America in 1947. Their popularity never reached that of Columbia's biggest cartoon stars, The Fox and the Crow. Flippity and Flop lived on only in comic books published by DC Comics until 1962.
