Description


This is a guide to 180 animated feature films, 58 features with animated sequences, and some 1,500 animated shorts. This book provides more basic information on animations rather than the more technical aspects behind the landmark cartoons. The author examines such animated films as Humorous Phases of Funny Faces (1906), worthy Academy Award winners like Fantasia (1940), and duds such as the X-rated Dirty Duck (1977). Entries offer a synopsis, basic information, and author’s rating (for features). An appendix lists the major animation studios.
