Overview

The Encyclopedia of Animated Cartoons is the most comprehensive, authoritative, and uptodate guide of its kind.

From the provocative Betty Boop who was censored out of theaters to Mel Blanc—the supreme master of cartoon voices at Warner Brothers for more than fifty years—no star in the cartoon constellation is overlooked.
