Descriptions du produit

First time in paperback: the behind-the-scenes story of the cartoon business from its silent-era beginnings to todays computer-generated animation--and how these toons reflect Americas values and dreams.. As Roger Rosenblatt put it, What makes Serious Business a special treat is that it is like the best of the cartoons itselffunny, touching, and infused with thoughtful joy. This generously illustrated history of animation looks at the creation and celluloid careers of such American icons as Felix the Cat, Jiminy Cricket, Mickey and Minnie, Popeye and Olive Oyl, Goofy, Yogi Bear, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Daffy Duck, Tom and Jerry, and the Pink Panther. Art and commerce collide again and again as Stefan Kanfer wittily probes the origins of such diverse cartoon families as the Flintstones, the Jetsons, and the Simpsons and looks at the phenomenal success of feature-length animated films such as Who Framed Roger Rabbit? and The Lion King . Serious Business is itself a classic of animation, bringing to life an art and an industry whose creations have now worked their way into every corner of American life.

A good book, but not a great one. 5 septembre 1997
Par T. Dahm - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
A good read, but not the great book it could have been. It could easily have been twice as long. Early chapters are strongest. Strong on Disney. Would like to have seen more on Looney Tunes

Great intro to American animation history! 11 juillet 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Well written, concise survey of American animation history. The only slights are that he doesn't have much to say on non-Disney animated efforts of the past decade, especially television animation, and that too many pages praise the horrendous UPA 'toons. Otherwise, this is a great intro to a neglected sector of American culture. If you want to learn about cartoons without buying a separate book on each major company, this should be your choice

A mixed bag... 25 octobre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
"Serious Business" is generally a good book, though with a few major flaws. It distinguishes itself by providing not only an overview of the history of cinematic animation in the US, but also places the rise and fall of animation in a historical and cultural context. It gives a clearer picture of how the politics and economics of the times influenced and steered not only the creation and content of animated pictures, but also the business aspects as well.
On the plus side, Kanfer does indeed delve beyond the standard name-and-dates syndrome of other animation histories. He attempts to provide a broad overview of the early years of animation and how non-Disney studios were to eventually fall to the Mouse. When focused, Kanfer's writing is extremely engaging and his accounts of the various political maneuverings are facsinating.
Unfortunately, Kanfer attempts to squeeze too much into to little space. One could easily see this book being twice the size it is now. As such, the very aspects one wants to explore most - how such things as economics, war, race and politics in America effected animation - are never really fleshed out for any given studio/cartoon beyond a few pages, or paragraphs. Significant space is given to Disney's story (perhaps deservedly so), but I would've liked to learn more about 'outsider' studios as well.
Kanfer also has a habit of not staying focused in his chapters and bouncing suddenly from place to place. It doesn't make the book unreadable by any means, but it does distract from the over-all flow of the narritave.
All in all though, I would recommend this book to anyone interested in a general historical overview of animation.
Fantastic book on the birth and rise and fall of the great animators. 17 avril 2010
Par DE Burke - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
From the very beginning of animation, to the great rivalries, to the rise and fall of many great animation houses--this book tells it in a clear and engaging way.
Superb book to learn the history of animation and what made it tick.
A great read. Well worth the time to read.

No Betty-Boop 2 février 2006
Par Fred Conwell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Amazon search indicated this was all Betty Boop so I bought this especially for a Betty Boop nut. Betty Boop was on the cover but nowhere in the index! So now I am reading it to see if I wasted my money.
