Throughout the month of February, we've explored the development and creation of Mr. Bug Goes to Town, Fleischer Studio's second - and last - feature length animated film.
Now, in the final installment of the series - just posted in our virtual museum - we follow Mr. Bug's fascinating, and at times complicated, journey to the silver screen against the backdrop of America's entry into World War II.

Join us in celebrating Women's History Month with this exciting and inspirational new exhibit in our Museum!
We're thrilled to honor two remarkable women this year. Both made Fleischer Studios their home… and made animation history: Betty Boop and Lillian Friedman, the first woman ever employed as a commercial animator!
