Did You Know?


Rather than making animated backgrounds using drawings the Fleischers pioneered the idea of using either models or cutouts mounted on a turntable. The table was slowly spun and photographed. The foreground animation was then placed in front of the photographed backgrounds. This not only saved hundred of hours of drawing but also lent a 3D effect to the back ground. It was used here and in numerous "Popeye" cartoons. See more »

Love this!

I saw this cartoon before work many years ago on a classic movie channel. The music and lyrics stayed in my head for years as I desperately searched for it. I didn't know what it was or who Max Fleischer was. I now own his whole collection. For early cartoon buffs, this is a delight! What an artist Fleischer was! I would recommend the entire collection to anyone who enjoys this cartoon. So much better than the technologically advanced but flat, boring cartoons of today! These do indeed take you to "Dreamland." On a warm night, when the moon is full, you can still see the little rocket taking off, for a night of fun and frolic way up there. Go ahead... buy your ticket.
