A silent animated series based on R. F. Outcault's Buster Brown and created and animated by Earl Hurd. This was a landmark series in that Hurd developed the cel animation process on this series. Previous to this series, all animated cartoons were produced on paper. To create the next image in a sequence, a new drawing had to be made- background and foreground objects combined. With cel animation, Bray drew his characters on clear sheets of plastic or celluloid, which could be place placed over still backgrounds during photography.
