The golden age of animation
Popeye, Felix the Cat and Mickey Mouse are all symbols of the golden age of animation. But contrary to appearances, early cartoons were never meant for children.
Friday, on Big Books and Bold Ideas, host Kerri Miller talked with author Reid Mitenbuler about the art, the rivalries, the failures and the geniuses from the history of animation.
Reid Mitenbuler is the author of “Wild Minds: The Artists and Rivalries that Inspired the Golden Age of Animation.”
