In 1943, the earliest form of UPA, known as Industrial Film and Poster Service, was organized to produce audiovisual material for government, the military, and corporations.  UPA’s first animated film, Hell-Bent for Election, was released in 1944 to promote President Roosevelt’s reelection.  Even in UPA’s halcyon decade, the 1950s, the studio continued to create industrial and educational films.
