Today’s most popular cartoons have been turned into some really entertaining movies not only for children but adults as well. Well-known characters from the cartoons, comic strips, and comic books all came from somewhere. Who started animations and how did they evolve into full-blown movies today?

Animations started out in black and white with no sound – pretty much as the silent movies did. Windsor McCay, who was a cartoonist in the 1900s, produced a short film in 1911 of his character “Little Nemo
” and then later in 1914 made another film of his character “Gertie The Dinosaur
” that he had created from drawings using animation. He had literally thousands of hand-drawings for this character that he used in order to make his films. Two other films that he did were “How A Mosquito Operates
1912 and “The Sinking Of The Lusitania
” in 1918.
