Overview

The Encyclopedia of Animated Cartoons is the most comprehensive, authoritative, and uptodate guide of its kind. More than 2,200 cartoon entries encompass all aspects of this twentieth century cultural phenomenon: creators, directors, production studios, voice talents, episode titles, and dates of release.
With a foreword by June Foray (the voice behind "Granny" and "Rocky the Squirrel"), more than 150 illustrations, and a nutshell history of American animation, this ready reference details every cartoon and every cartoon character ever created. 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.

This revised edition features:
• Every production from 1911 to the present, including animated features and television shows produced in the past five years
• Silent cartoons
• Sound cartoons
• Fulllength animated features
• Animated television specials
• Television series cartoons
• Awards and honors.
