Time for another edition of "Who Am I?" The game where you have to guess the subject through one clue per day.

As usual, the winner gets a chunk of my gratitude.

Without further adieu, here's the first clue of the week. This week's subject is a PERSON.

Oh, and this will be a stumper this week.

CLUE#1: I made my first film around 1929.

It's not the founder of Universal Studios.

However, he was one of the heads of a Famous Studio...

And finally...

CLUE #4: I helped bring Popeye, Betty Boop and Casper the Friendly Ghost to life.

^^ Either him or Dave Fleischer.

**Then again, searches on both of them doesn't show them having any sons named Tom or Ken. :confused:

MadisonRadio won!

It's legendary Popeye animator/director Seymour Kneitel, who animated the cartoon sailor for decades. He was also Max Fleischer's son-in-law. He even took over his studio, along with storyman I. Sparber and a few others, when the Fleischer went bankrupt in the early 40's.

As an added bonus, here's a cartoon Kneitel animated:

And one Sparber made (NSFW):
