Today's Google Doodle honours what would've been the 117th birthday of, German-American abstract artist, Oskar Fischinger.
In Hitler's Germany, Fischinger's musical animations were deemed to be "degenerate art". In 1936, when an agent from Paramount Pictures recruited him to work in America, he left for the US.
