“Adam (Abraham) writes well, and certainly did his homework; I learned a lot and pass along my highest recommendation.” ―Leonard Maltin, Movie Crazy
“Readers familiar only with the studio’s most famous creation, the nearsighted and befuddled Mr. Magoo, can hardly begin to appreciate the range and diversity of the studio’s best work. But Adam Abraham’s When Magoo Flew, the first full-scale history of UPA, is a good place to start.”―Will Friedwald, Wall Street Journal
“The research is impeccable, the writing solid, the story fascinating...”―Amid Amidi, Cartoon Brew
“This splendid, and long-overdue, book traces the colorful history of the studio that sought to reinvent American animation. Abraham has done his homework and weaves the individual stories of UPA’s many artists and personalities into a seamless and highly readable narrative. A first-rate piece of film history.” (Leonard Maltin)|“At last! The story of UPA, the influential little-studio-that-could―and did―challenge Disney’s domination of animation design and content, has finally been told accurately, with wit, clarity, and insight.” (John Canemaker, Oscar-winning animator and director of animation at the Kanbar Institute of Film and Television at New York University)See all Editorial Reviews

This is a history of United Productions of America. They went beyond Disney and Warner, to do some innovative things. It's a good history, better documented than some.Published on July 8, 2012 by David
