101 Years of Animation
Considered by many to be the first fully animated film, today in 1908 Emile Cohl released "Fantasmagorie". 700 individual drawings all from the artists hand. Enjoy!
True, it's not slick and pretty like today'sCGI stuff. But, in my opinion, it has more character development and a deeper storyline than your average "Dreamworks" pile o' dung. I'll watch this over "Shrek 14" any day.
