Episode: Pint O' Comics Episode 332 w/ G. Michael Dobbs

 Made of Pen & Ink: Fleischer Studios The Florida Years is the second volume of G. Michael Dobb's retrospective of the Fleischer Animation Studio that provided early 20th century movie goers with Betty Boop, Popeye, and the incredibly ambitious Superman shorts that entertained millions. Here readers can learn the depth of the move from NYC to Miami the studio had done, as well as the abrupt takeover by Paramount and the eventual dissolve from Fleischer to Famous Studios. It's packed with amazing information with a great understanding of the impact these animated cartoons had upon multiple generations of viewers. Enjoy!
