1939 - 1953
SKATIN' TOONS was funded in 1939, based in Smithtown Branch, New York.
Issued ten records and a one hour tape recording every month in the forties. First advertised in the December 1942 issue of "Skating" magazine.
In March 1953, the company was purchased by Wally Kiefer, a former ice skating rink operator in the midwest and at the White Plains Skating Rink who was the office sales and office manager for Skatin' Toons starting in 1948. As skating associations and the International Skating Union (ISU) took the distribution of skating music into their own hands, the company soon became obsolete.
