David Perlmutter is a freelance writer who has written both fiction and nonfiction. He is the author of America Toons In: A History of Television Animation (2014).
Animation and animated television shows are so ingrained in modern life that we rarely consider just how new animation is as an art form, nor how prevalent these shows are on television. There is a plethora of animated shows, from cartoons aimed at young children to those created specifically for adults, and to create a reference work on them is an overwhelming endeavor. However, in The Encyclopedia of American Animated Television Shows, David Perlmutter has set boundaries for himself, and thus produced an excellent reference work. . . . This encyclopedia is easy to read and understand and contains quite a variety of animated television shows. . . It is an excellent resource for those studying animation, television, or perhaps even the rise of the media influence on modern society.—Mary Rebecca Yantis
