Koko the Clown is an animated cartoon character created by Max Fleischer. He first appeared as the main protagonist in Out of the Inkwell (1918–1929), a major animated series of the silent era. Throughout the series, he goes on many adventures with his canine companion “Fitz the Dog”, who would later evolve into Bimbo in the Betty Boop cartoons.
ABOUT THE PROGRAMMING SERIES
Merchandise in support of the Academy Museum film series Weekend Short Cuts: Fabulous Fleischer Studio Cartoons. On weekend afternoons this fall, museum visitors can experience a suite of classic animated short films by Max and Dave Fleischer in the state-of-the-art David Geffen Theater (DGT) with the purchase of a general admission ticket.
Max Fleischer was an American animator, inventor, film director and producer, and studio founder and owner. Born in Kraków, Fleischer immigrated to the United States where he became a pioneer in the development of the animated cartoon and served as the head of Fleischer Studios, which he co-founded with his younger brother Dave. He brought such comic characters as Koko the Clown, Betty Boop, Popeye, and Superman to the movie screen, and was responsible for several technological innovations, including the rotoscope, the "follow the bouncing ball" technique pioneered in the Ko-Ko Song Car-Tunes films, and the "stereoptical process".
