Cartooning America: The Fleischer Brothers Story
National Endowment for the Humanities
Dietz, Kathryn Pierce
It is unusual for us to include a grant proposal in this catalog and repository, but in this case we thought it appropriate. It includes a detailed discussion of the lives and accomplishments of the Fleischer brothers, a Jewish American "family of artists and and inventors who revolutionized animation and and most irreverent cartoon characters of all times." The brothers created the cartoon characters of Superman, Popeye and Betty Boop. Click on the icon below to access the pdf of this fascinating story. Click on the top See Also for a link to the movie. The other link is to a discussion of Betty Boop.
