Watch History of Animation - Origins of American Animation
- 1 Season
This historic series features some of the earliest and most hilarious animated features made between 1900 and 1921. Few early-animated films carried a story line, except for Otto Meessmer's Felix the Cat and Winsor McCay's Gertie the Dinosaur. McCay produced his animated stories by making between four thousand and ten thousand separate line drawings and then filming these with a movie camera.
