They were the figures who kept children flocking to the cinemas to keep up with their zany antics. Comedy, drama, slapstick and adventure...all could be found in the colourful world inhabited by some of the greatest cartoon characters ever drawn. From Popeye the Sailor to Casper The Friendly Ghost, to Mighty Mouse, Superman, Betty Boop and many, many more, these are the famous names from the greatest era in animation history. It was a time when friendly rivalries between the likes of Walt Disney, MGM, Universal, Warner Bros and Paramount drove the cartoon format to new heights, both in terms of new technical innovations and lovable characters with lasting appeal. This lavishly illustrated book celebrates these groundbreaking and much-loved cartoons while telling the story behind their creation, and is the perfect complement to the accompanying six DVDs, which feature over 20 hours of classic episodes starring everyone from Superman to Woody Woodpecker. So sit back and enjoy the type of classic entertainment that makes any time feel like a Saturday morning, because they really don t make them like this any more!
