Fantasmagorie: The Origins of Animation

It is no secret that I'm an anime-fan; especially Japanese-anime. I recently stumbled upon--what many consider to be--the first full film animation ever made. "Fantasmagorie" was created by the Frenchman Emile Cohl in 1908. Cohl is considered the "father of motion picture animation" and is credited as the person to have made the first puppet animation film, the first animation film in colour, the first animation based on comic strips and the first to make an animated commercial.
