Great quotes left in the 1976 version of “The Fleischer Story”

There was also a Bimbo flipbook, a bigger look at Wiffle Piffle (an peripheral character in the Betty Boop Universe) including his humorous walk, and a Betty Boop “interview”. But the real lost treasures are the quotes below (truer words never spoken):

Page 26
“Another of Max’s mottos was “If it can be done in real life, it’s not animation”’.

Page 32 {Author’s opinion-broken up for clarity]
“ It’s interesting that Betty’s appearance went through many changes before returning to its original form and becoming standard.

As in many art movements, the vision of each animator was not to be tampered with, regardless of the audience confusion it may have caused.

[Here’s they key]
An art movement usually becomes more popular when it serves the people rather than the artists.”
