    I just finished watching The Equalizer 2 and it's better than the first one, which was pretty damn good. Much more dramatic story.

    JJJ, thanks:

    IO once heard that history is written by the survivors. This is true about animation too! Not just the propaganda from the Disney studios, but from other sources, it often sounds that Disney was the only innovator in this field. There were many others. And the Fleischer Brothers were two of them, they invented many of the techniques and equipment, including the multi-layer cameras, that other studios used.

    What they weren’t were good business men.

    At a time when cartoons were made for both adults and children, when they were showing in movie theaters between the double features or after a newsreel, the Fleischer cartoons were much in demand. They created the Out of the Inkwell series, Coco the clown, Betty Boop (did you know she was originally a dog?) and brought Popeye to the screen in glorious black and white.

    My favorite was the 1939 Superman cartoons, the first where real people, not exaggerated characters were presented. The Batman animated series based their look on these cartoons, they are great. I show that to kids today and they love it!!!

    Briefly, Paramount was their distributer and they were loyal to them, even though other companies tried to hire them. Paramount only gave them a small fraction of what they were making (for example, the Fleischer’s got not of the money from the foreign distribution) and Paramount bankrupted them and took over their studios, changing the name to “Famous Studios.” Of course much of the creativity ended at that point. The cartoons were not bad, but all originality was left behind.
