Now in Softcover: Television Cartoon Shows

Now available in softcover:

Television Cartoon Shows: An Illustrated Encyclopedia, 1949 through 2003, 2d ed.
Hal Erickson

This comprehensive reference to TV cartoon shows covers some 75 years. In the decade or so since the first edition, the industry has grown and expanded to previously unimagined heights, thanks in great part to the upsurge of cable TV services catering to animation fans. In the ten-year period since the first edition, nearly 450 new cartoon series premiered in the U.S.

Alphabetically arranged by title, the book discusses each cartoon show in detail, providing full production credits and offering commentary on such elements as development, characters, style, and the show’s significance in the overall scheme of television animation.
