Several art schools dot the Hollywood/Los Angeles area, and the UPA movement attracted many students to any of the films they produced during the fifties.

UPA's "Tell-Tale Heart" was an animated short (not considered a cartoon in the usual sense) which opened December 27th 1953 in Hollywood, along with the B/W feature film; "From Here to Eternity", not exactly an upbeat movie. (Remember; The film depicted the invasion of Pearl Harbor by the Japanese as well as Frank Sinatra being beaten to death by Ernest Borgnine.)
That particular UPA short definitely put the movie goer into the correct frame of mind. I know, I was there as a nineteen year old art student.
