Little Nemo by Winsor McCay

In this early silent film the character and world of Little Nemo is created. The artist discusses his drawing with his friends and draws a few while they are present. He then promises to create 4000 pictures to create an animated moving picture by the end of the month. He has a few setbacks when a kid knocks all the pictures over and they have to figure out the order of the pictures again. Eventually he plays the final film for his friends. (1911)
