Check out this terrific edition of Popular Science from the 1930’s, which gives an inside look at the Fleischer animation studio and the making of a Popeye cartoon. The Fleischer studio was based in Florida and was Walt Disney’s biggest competitor for most of the 20’s, 30’s, and early 40’s before the studio closed after the box office failure of Mr. Bug Goes to Town. It’s a shame too, because the Fleischer cartoons were tremendous. But check out this cool film and get a glimpse into early animation history!
