The Golden Age of U.S. animation is a period in the United States animation history that began with the advent of sound cartoons in 1928, with a peak between the second half of the 1930s and the first half of the 1940s, and continued into the early 1960s when theatrical animated shorts slowly began losing to the new medium of television animation. Many memorable characters emerged from this period including Bugs Bunny, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Goofy, Popeye, Betty Boop, Woody Woodpecker, Mighty Mouse, Mr. Magoo, Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner, Tom and Jerry, and a popular adaptation of Superman. Feature length animation also began during this period, most notably with Walt Disney's first films: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio, Fantasia, Dumbo and Bambi.
