9781941500378: Son of Faster Cheaper: A Sharp Look Inside the Animation Business

The World's Most Dangerous Cartoonist

Disney Legend Floyd Norman got his start at the Disney studio in 1956, when Walt still walked the halls, coughing and cursing. He's been there, off and on, ever since, and this book contains over 100 of his sharp-edged (and sometimes smart-assed) cartoons about the animation business.

Floyd's cartoons focus on his years at Disney, both under Walt's aristocracy and Michael Eisner's dictatorship, as well as his work for Hanna-Barbera. No topic is off-limits, from the poor treatment of animators by money-hungry studio bosses and the dismal decisions that led to box-office flops, to mercilessly honest caricatures of Walt Disney, Michael Eisner, Hanna and Barbera, and other notables.

Among the topics skewered by Floyd's scathingly funny cartoons:

  • Walt Disney's iron rule over the studio, and his unfortunate encounter with an African missionary
  • The war zone known as the studio of "Taskmaster" William Hanna and "Hollywood" Joe Barbera
  • The radioactive arrival of Michael Eisner at Disney, his Walt envy, and his wealth obsession
  • Dozens of cartoons about animators at work, studio bosses with fangs out, and films never made (as well as film that never should have been made)

Why read about Disney and animation history when you can laugh yourself silly over it?
