Hollywood Cartoons go to color (1930-1938)
It should be noted that between 1932 and 1935, Walt Disney had exclusive rights to the 3-strip Technicolor process, thus everyone else had to settle for a two-color process for the time. Animator Ted Eshbaugh made a 3-strip Technicolor adaptation of The Wizard Of Oz in 1933, but since it wasn’t properly licensed by the Technicolor company, it was released in black and white.
