The filmography has been years in the making - and there are still gaps. As new material and information comes to light we will continue to grow and expand our database. In other words: this is only the beginning! You can utilize this user-friendly filmography to find your favorite Betty Boop cartoon or take on some serious animation research.
We hope this project will serve as a tribute, not only to the Fleischers themselves, but to all the artists who contributed their talents to these ground-breaking classic films and the audiences who love them.

As an added bonus, this exciting exhibit includes private, never-before-released, home audio recordings from the Fleischer Family Collection. What was it like to be a member of Fleischer Studios' inner circle of family and friends? Now you can hear for yourself! Don't miss this very special new exhibit: We're celebrating Max's birthday... and you're invited!
Famous Studios (the animation studio that succeeded Fleischer Studios), made what’s known in the world of animation, as a 'cheater’ film. In order to save money 'cheater' films mixed footage from an older film with new footage to create a film that gives the feeling (perhaps even the illusion) of an entirely new film. In Popeye’s Premiere, film stars Popeye and Olive Oyl attend the red carpet opening of "new" motion picture entitled Aladdin's Lamp, a film created entirely by piecing together chunks of footage from the 1939 animated classic Aladdin and His Wonderful Lamp.
