Educational Pictures was advertised as "The Spice Of The Program". They were called "Educational" because they started out making educational films before switching to comedy films. Their logo represented Aladin's magic lamp out of the Arabian Nights.
Jack White* was actually one of the more important producers of comedy short subjects in the twenties. In 1929 Thelma Todd appeared in one of his comedies, LOOK OUT BELOW.

Monte Collins appeared in many comedies in that period and worked with the Three Stooges as well as Buster Keaton at Columbia.
An ad for Educational Pictures lists Thelma Todd along with Mack Sennett, Anita Garvin, Phyllis Crane, and many others.
But after LOOK OUT BELOW, she never made another picture for them. The Hal Roach studio was becoming the leader of the short subjects field, and Thelma Todd did most of her work in short subjects there.
An ad for Educational pictures a little later in the decade features Buster Keaton,
who went to work for them after having been fired by MGM.
Educational had seen better days prior to the thirties, and would be gone before the end of the decade, a victim of financial problems that affected the entire industry.
*Jack White was the brother of Jules White, and would later work for him at Columbia under the stage name of "Preston Black".
