When Paramount removed Max Fleischer (Betty Boop, Popeye) from control of the Fleischer cartoon studio in 1942, the future looked grim. But under the new name of Famous Studios, a core group of artists kept at work—and brought a crazy cast of characters to life in Noveltoons, an unforgettable one-shot series.
Now 20 of these classics are back, digitally restored and remastered, now in HD, from original 35mm and 16mm film materials-brighter and more colorful than they’ve looked in decades. Famous stars like Raggedy Ann, Herman the Mouse, Blackie Sheep, and Baby Huey pop right off the screen… with anvils and shotguns in hand!
Bonus features include commentaries by animators and animation historians; galleries of original art and ads; vintage storyboards and more.
