Just in time for Halloween!
Check out the fourth installment of our interview with Ray Pointer, animator, historian and author of The Art and Inventions of Max Fleischer. This fascinating - and final - portion of our interview focuses on the Surrealism found in so many Fleischer cartoons, and why we shouldn't let it get in the way of enjoying the opportunity to be amused.
It's the perfect addition to your Halloween viewing, including some seriously surreal clips, like the one above from "Bubbles." Check it out here!
The J-esthetics media campaing also includes print and digital ads, posters in transit stations, on subway and trains, print ads, electronic billboards and contests.
Check out these fabulous new looks strutting the catwalk last week in Los Angeles!
The collection will include items for men, women and children, so the entire family can be outfitted in Moschino style gear featuring Betty Boop and Pudgy!

Betty Boop and Zac Posen co-star in “Betty Goes A-Posen,”
Betty Boop’s first animated short for the Digital Age!
We're thrilled to share this wonderful, whimsical new animated short featuring Betty Boop, Pudgy and an animated Zac Posen.
Created to celebrate the launch of Zac Posen's new Betty Boop-inspired dress designs, MAC Cosmetics' new Betty Boop Lipstick (both featuring Pantone's new shade of Betty Boop Red) and Betty’s gorgeous fashion layout in the March issue of Marie Claire Magazine, "Betty Goes A-Posen" is a wonderful reminder that some things - and some characters - never go out of style!
A New Dress Collection from Zac Posen, "Betty Boop Red" by Pantone, Betty Boop Red Lipstick from M·A·C Cosmetics and a spread in "Marie Claire!"
These exciting new releases also coincide with the release of three new, original animated shorts starring Betty Boop, featuring Zac Posen as an animated cartoon co-star, and spotlighting the new Betty Boop Red Lipstick by M·A·C.
The Betty Boop dress collection - featuring two red dresses that embrace Betty's spirit and unique style - are available on ZacPosen.com as part of Posen’s ZAC Zac Posen line. Betty Boop Red Lipstick from M·A·C. Cosmetics is available at MACCosmetics.com.
“As a cartoonist, I consider Betty Boop the 8th Wonder of the World,” said Frank Caruso, VP/Creative, King Features Syndicate. “When Max Fleischer dipped his pen into the inkwell, out came a masterpiece that would influence generations of artists, animators, musicians and fashion designers.
“The marathon that is Betty Boop has outrun her legend as animation icon and taken the lead in the world of fashion, style and our hearts,” Caruso said.
We couldn't agree more!
