This is a book about Hollywood studio cartoons in its 'golden age' - thus a book about cartoons, most of them only seven or eight minutes long, that were commonly part of movie theatre programmes in the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s. This authoritative account looks principally at the Walt Disney studio - including its full-length cartoons, beginning with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs - but also focuses strongly on Warner Brothers and MGM cartoons in this period.show more
