If you are a fan of Betty Boop and/or Popeye and would like to educate yourself with behind the scenes info then this is the book you want. It is LOADED with illustrations - if the book has one flaw it is that the illustrations distract the reader from the copy on every page!
There are family photos of the Fleischers, character model sheets, cel pics, assorted Fleischer-ana and a checklist of every film the brothers and studio produced.
And as fascinating as the books subject is, the story of how it came together is just as interesting and is related here by the author Mr. Leslie Cabarga who now produces many fine volumes on type fonts and graphics. He also provided the large cut-outs that form Leonard Maltin's backdrop in his Fleischer film biography "Cartoon Madness: The Fantastic Max Fleischer Cartoons".
It is truly a shame that this is no longer in print.
