- Cartoon collector/historian Tommy Stathes, who will look back at animation’s NYC roots and shares archival clips of Winsor McCay (Gertie the Trained Dinosaur), Bray Studios and pioneering animators Paul Terry (Mighty Mouse), Max Fleischer (Koko the Clown, Betty Boop, Popeye, Superman), and Walter Lantz (Woody the Woodpecker.)
