OUT OF THE INKWELL:
KOKO THE CLOWN

FAMILY SCREENING

Max Fleischer was a cartoonist whose interest in mechanics led to some of the wildest cartoons ever made.

 

With his brother Dave he created the rotoscope, a device which enabled artists to trace outlines from single frames of a motion picture in order to create animated characters that move like real-life people.

 

Fleischer's character Koko the Clown made his first public appearance in 1919’s Out of the Inkwell and a New York Times reviewer wrote: “He walks, dances and leaps as a human being, as a particularly easy-limbed human being might.”

The brothers Max and Dave, through the Fleischer Studios and at the height of their productions, were the biggest competitors of Walt Disney with their cartoon characters, of which the best known are Betty Boop, Koko the Clown, Bimbo, Popeye and Superman.
