Paramount cartoons produced by Fleischer Studios continued to be successful, with characters such as Betty Boop and Popeye the Sailor becoming widely successful. One Fleischer series, Screen Songs , featured live-action music stars under contract to Paramount hosting sing-alongs of popular songs. The animation studio would rebound with Popeye , and in 1935, polls showed that Popeye was even more popular than Mickey Mouse .  After an unsuccessful expansion into feature films, as well as the fact that Max and Dave Fleischer were no longer speaking to one another, Fleischer Studios was acquired by Paramount, which renamed the operation Famous Studios . That incarnation of the animation studio continued cartoon production until 1967, but has been historically dismissed as having largely failed to maintain the artistic acclaim the Fleischer brothers achieved under their management. 
I agree with everyone who blames the . I wish we would stay out of all foreign affairs. I wish all foreign countries woulad have to take care of themselves. In the meantime the . could just build up our military for what would surely come which would be a World War of Eastern Countries versus the . You leftist people are such ostriches. The reason the . strikes first is to prevent other countries from striking at all.
If the . is hated by a country it is because we thwarted them from doing something bad. Think about it. I mean God forbid we stop Iraq, Iran, Korea and whatever other countries hate us from developing Nuclear weapons. Why do we care? Oh wait - that's right - CAUSE THEY HATE US!!!!!!!!!

So once again. I am all for the . staying out of everybodies business. But that means staying out of everything. Instead of feeding Darfur lets feed Americans. Instead adopting African children BranJoliena lets adopt American kids. Lets house the poor. Lets create jobs here in the .
"We the people"... have the power to do this. Not the government. Not the Democrats. Not the Republicans. THE PEOPLE. We vote in the lesser of two evils every election. Not someone we fully trust. Just the person we think can do the best job who is lieing the least. We lose every time. We the people have the power. We the people need to use it. Screw the eastern hemisphere - worry about us for a while for once.
