    (July 19, 1883-September 11, 1972)
    Founder of Max Fleischer Studio (1921-1942)
    Invented rotoscope (allows animators to trace live action footage)
    Created characters Betty Boop and Koko the Clown
    Produced 'Out of the Inkwell (1919),' 'The Dresden Doll (1922),' 'Koko the Hot Shot (1925),' 'Sweet Adeline (1926),' 'Koko in 1999 (1927),' 'Dizzy Dishes (1930),' 'Betty in Blunderland (1934),' 'Betty Boop and Grampy (1935),' 'Gulliver's Travels (1939)' and 'Superman (1941)'
    Many of his early cartoons were racist and sexist.
    He created the infamous bouncing ball for sing-a-long cartoons.
    He employed many family members.
    Unlike Walt Disney, he could not make the jump to feature length cartoons.
    He was eventually eclipsed by Disney.
    He died in poverty.
    He created many cartoon icons such as Betty Boop and Koko the Clown.
    He was the first cartoonist to combine live action and animation.
    He (not Disney as many believe) produced the first sound cartoon, 'Sweet Adeline' in 1926.
    He held several patents.
    Betty Boop (based on Helen Kane), perhaps the sexiest cartoon ever, remains popular today.
    Many prefer his trippy, often eerie cartoons to Disney's more sentimental style.
