Overview

Animated cartoons are part of a multi-billion dollar mass communications industry that began shortly before the turn of the 20th century. The first cartoons appeared almost with the birth of the film industry. Beginning with the late 1920s, cartoon "shorts" appeared in almost every double feature. But by the late 1960s, the major studios had eliminated the theatrical cartoon shorts, only to resurrect them for a younger television audience. Cartoon Monickers is the story not only of cartoons, but of the film and television industries, and American social values.
