Name

Fleischer Studios

Fleischer Studios, Inc., was an American corporation which originated as an animation studio located at 1600 Broadway (New York City) Broadway, New York. It was founded in 1921 as Inkwell Studios (or Out of the Inkwell Films) by brothers Max Fleischer and Dave Fleischer who ran the company from its inception until Paramount Pictures, the studio's parent company and the distributor of its films, forced them to resign in April 1942. In its prime, it was the most significant competitor to Walt Disney Productions, and is notable for bringing to the screen cartoons featuring Koko the Clown, Betty Boop, Bimbo, Popeye, and Superman (1940s) cartoons. Unlike other studios, whose most famous characters were anthropomorphic animals, the Fleischers most popular characters were humans.
