Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Claiming to be the "the first biographical reference book of its kind," this work profiles almost 300 animators who have won or been nominated for Academy, Emmy, or other awards. Chatty entries are accompanied by a few black-and-white portraits, and there is a 12-page section of color plates of animation art, though, given the topic, some readers might be disappointed that there aren't more illustrations. The author provides a select bibliography, but no sources are cited for the entries themselves. Mary Ellen Quinn

Review

"This fascinating tour of film history should prove popular in both academic and public libraries. -- Gale Reference Reviews


"...excellent book....highlighting the creative talents that have made animation not only an art but also a successful industry. -- Library Journal

"The massive, nearly 400-page Who's Who in Animated Cartoons certainly lives up to its title, featuring entries on scores of animators, animation directors, and animation producers. This a handy, essential resource covering the international animation scene." -- Quick Stop Entertainment

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book contains a lot of information about various animation pioneers throughout the history of the industry. I have it as a required book for a history of animation class I teach. The only complaint my students make is it needs pictures to go along with the animators and their most acclaimed work.

Here's the first biographical reference to detail the careers of nearly three hundred animation greats around the world, from producers and directors to animator artists. It's written in cooperation with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and scientists and other major film and award groups, and provides an A-Z reference of biographical information, discussions of early film works and styles, key films, and character evolution.

While this could've been featured in our arts or cartooning sections, it's reviewed here so nobody will miss its biographical strengths.

Format: Paperback
This book was a gift and it is a lot of fun, but I have never seen so many editing errors and factual mistakes in my life!! Repeated phrases in the same sentence, and sentences that run on for eight to ten lines in the book with so many commas used that I lose the idea of what the sentence was about in the first place! Then there's the factual errors such as saying that Tex Avery died in the Hanna-Barbera parking lot when he actually was found there by Hanna and taken to the hospital and died weeks later from cancer, or that Maurice Noble returned to Warners' Chuck Jones unit in 1951 and helped to create the layouts for a cartoon that was released in 1948! Then there's the comment that the Francis the Talking Mule films were made by United International Pictures when it was UNIVERSAL International Pictures! I like the book, but I think I'm having more fun reading to find mistakes than anything else.
