Gertie Story Detail
Winsor McCay first appears on camera in Gertie with cartoonist George McManus and humorist Roy McCardell. They visit a natural history museum and the remains of a dinosaur. McCay bets McManus that he can make the dinosaur live again in a series of cartoons. Thus, he breathes life into Gertie The Dinosaur, one of his most famous creations- and the most popular animated character of the day. When McCay's friends gather in a posh dining room, they are treated to Gertie, who does her best to please despite occasional distractions from passing sea monsters and elephants. "Gertie" rhythmically keeps pace as other creatures interact, such as a monkey in a tree that gets whipped around a bit for playing too close to "Gertie."
