Cartoon Production Information:

Silent cartoon.

Fully animated with no live action, generally considered to be the first fully-animated film.

Created from over 700 drawings, Cohl placed each drawing on an illuminated glass plate and then traced the next drawing on top of it. By showing the negative instead of a positive of the film, Cohl made his line drawings appear to be chalk drawings- white on black instead of the black on white of this actual work.

Premiered at the Théâtre du Gymnase in Paris.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
