Pioneering animator Jay Ward was a realtor when he hit on the idea of producing cartoons for television in 1949. Crusader Rabbit was the first cartoon series produced exclusively for the new medium, and was an instant hit. From there, Jay Ward opened Jay Ward Productions to produce a variety of other classic cartoons such as Rocky & Bullwinkle, Dudley Do-Right, Peabody's Improbable History, George of the Jungle, Tom Slick and Super Chicken. His company, Jay Ward Productions, also designed the trademark characters for Cap'n Crunch, Quisp and Quake breakfast cereals and made commercials for those products, among others.
