The Max Fleischer Classic Collection
The first to create cartoons by tracing live-action footage, producer Max Fleischer and his brother, director Dave Fleischer, used this patented invention to revolutionize animation. More than 600 artists and technicians were employed on each cartoon to bring this magic to the screen, so prepare to be amazed by some of the most dazzling special effects ever!
Introduced in their 1939 feature Gulliver's Travels, Gabby (Pinto Colvig, who also voiced Goofy or Fleischer's rival, Walt Disney) appeared in eight shorts over the next two years. Here are five adventures with this Jack of all trades and master of nothing but trouble, plus five earlier Fleischer shorts including the Oscar nominated Hunky and Spunky (1938).
