Popeye The Sailor - Bernie Fleischer (Nephew of Max) & Ray Pointer Guest on Stu's Show

Call in to Shokus Internet Radio to ask questions & chat with these 2 Fleischer Studio experts

Posted by David Lambert




With the recent release of WB's "Popeye The Sailor - Volume 2: 1938-1940" DVD box set, it's only appropriate that "Stu's Show," the signature program on Shokus Internet Radio (, presents an in-depth look at the Max Fleischer cartoon studio to augment the documentary included as bonus footage in the Popeye box set.

Animation Producer/Director Ray Pointer ("Dora the Explorer"/"Catdog"/Pebbles cereal commercials), who is a foremost expert on the history of the Fleischer studio, and Max's nephew Bernie, a talented musician and former member of The Baja Marimba Band, will be the in-studio guests on "Stu's Show," hosted by station owner Stu Shostak, this Wednesday, July 2nd beginning at 4 p.m. PDT (7:00 p.m. EDT). Ray will discuss in detail Max's invention of the Rotoscope, the Helen Kane/Betty Boop lawsuit, the animators' strike in 1937, the move of the studio from New York to Miami, and the eventual takeover by Paramount Pictures in the early 1940s. Bernie will recount memories as a child he has of visiting the studio and watching Popeye and Betty Boop cartoons being produced. In addition, he will tell the story of how he was cast at age 10 to provide the voice of Raggedy Andy in the 1941 classic, "Raggedy Ann and Andy."

"Stu's Show" airs live each Wednesday at 4:00 p.m. PDT on Shokus Internet Radio, with rebroadcasts at the same time daily. Access to the station's feed is free, with no registration required, and is available either by clicking on the ENTER SITE button on the home page (, by choosing one of the audio player links on the main.html page or via iTunes by selecting Radio/Eclectic and then locating the station's name alphabetically in the list.
