Gertie the Dinosaur

 
Sheepshead Bay in 1914
  • Gertie the Dinosaur is the masterpiece of early animation. It employed 10,000 animated drawings inked on rice paper and mounted on cardboard. Artist Winsor McCay used full animation—a new drawing for each individual frame of film—and while he himself did all the drawings of Gertie, he hired his young neighbor John Fitzsimmons to assist him in tracing the stationary background of trees, rocks and water. Gertie is the improvement and development of McCay's animation experiments in his first two films, Little Nemo and The Story of a Mosquito.
