Quotes / Pragmatic Adaptation

"The Fleischers did the exact right thing with E.C. Segar's characters. They left the personalities of the characters intact and found voices that perfectly suited their personalities. The comic strip stories were continued every day and whole plots sometimes took months to complete. This type of story structure obviously wouldn't work in a 6 minute cartoon, so The Fleischers devised new story structures that took advantage of the personalities and atmosphere of the original, but added the things that only film and animation could do. Music, acting, motion gags, magic and more."
