In the Shade of the Old Apple Tree

In the Shade of the Old Apple Tree (1930). Yip wrote light verse for an unknown number of Fleischer Brothers cartoons while under contract at Paramount’s Astoria Long Island studios. This may be the first. Before the title song, a voice is heard reciting Yip’s rhymed introduction as a white apple bounces against a black background. Available from private collectors only.
