Animating Space

J. P. Telotte

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter discusses animated films that follow what Norman Klein terms the death of the conventional seven-minute cartoon, as its cinematic incarnation gave way to television and its early emphasis on restricted animation. It examines two feature films that self-consciously explore the dynamics of animation as they look both backward and forward in terms of animating space and the sort of characters who inhabit the cartoon world. Focus is mostly on Who Framed Roger Rabbit, a work that brings together Warner Bros.' and Disney's approaches to animation.

Keywords:   animated films, Norman Klein, restricted animation, dynamics, animating space, Warner Bros., Disney
