Production Notes:

Silent cartoon.

Although this is not an animated film, the origins of animated film can be glimpsed here. J. Stuart Blackton, then a cartoonist for the New York Evening World, is photographed in Thomas Edison's New Jersey "Black Maria" studio performing a vaudeville routine known as the "lightning sketch," supplemented by stop-camera tricks that bring the drawn objects to life.

Copyrighted in 1900, it was probably filmed three or four years earlier.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
