Hey, some of the earliest animation was Windsor McKay drawing out and interacting with "Gertie the Dinosaur." Cartoonists were portrayed at the dawn of the film.

Ha -- I see you included my obscure short film "Tim Warner: A Life in the Clouds." Thanks! I am honored. It's actually a movie cruelly making fun of terrible comic artists who hate their lives.
