It was nearly 100 years ago that Max Fleischer created the impish little clown that would come to be known by fans around the world simply as Koko. This is the story of how a little clown became a big star.
On December 6th, 1915, Max Fleischer applied for a patent for an invention that would revolutionize the look of animated films…aninvention that is still widely used today: The Rotoscope. What is the Rotoscope? How did it revolutionize animation? Find out here.
Just in time for Thanksgiving! This exhibit looks at one of the clever, and delightfully captivating, ways Max connected personally with his fans: thoughtfully designed and personally inscribed "fan cards." Find out more about them here.
