Products description

Here is the most complete and lavishly illustrated history of animation ever published, now revised and brought up to date to cover the latest developments and the most recent releases.
The book is bursting at the seams with everyone's favorite cartoon characters: Gertie the Dinosaur, Betty Boop, Donald and Mickey, Popeye, Mighty Mouse, Woody Woodpecker, Porky Pig, Bugs Bunny, the Flintstones, the Simpsons, Belle and Beast, Genie and Aladdin, and many, many more.
It begins with the traveling magic lantern shows that thrilled audiences in the 1700s, continues through the birth of Felix the Cat and Mickey Mouse in the 1920s and goes right up to the modern marvels of Jurassic Park and The Lion King.
With its wonderfully authoritative and comprehensive text and its more than 400 drawings, photographs, cels and filmstrips, this book is a joy and a must-for everyone who has ever responded to the magic of cartoons.
