0

Today in 1908, French animator Émile Cohl released his film Fantasmagorie, which historians believe to be the first animated cartoon ever made. It runs for 1 minute and 20 seconds and contains over 700 hand-drawn frames which were then shot onto negative film to achieve the “blackboard” style look.
