Introduction: How did the cartoons start?
How did the cartoons start? The first attempt at an animated film, titled “The Magic Painting” by Stuart Blackton, was followed by the first full-scale cartoon with Fluff Face transmissions in 1906, which was considered the founding father of American cartoons, while French Emile Cole made the first European cartoon called Fantasmagorie in 1908, the first of its kind to appear with a black background as a result of each frame is drawn and then placed on the negative.
American animator Wencer McKay showed his first animated film, Little Nemo, in New York City in 1911, and his most famous film, Dinosaur Gerty, in 1914.
The first cartoon to quickly spread commercially was Otto Messmer’s cat Felix, who attracted many viewers at the time.
During this period animation began to take on another commercial dimension, as several companies were established in the United States to produce cartoons.
Disney founded the company and launched the world’s first cartoon, Alice in Wonderland, a 12-minute silent animation.
After producing Mickey (1928), making the characters appear as real-world heroes associated with the scene so far, the series began with the “Steamboat Willie”, the funny symphony series Silly Symphony, where it made the series’ first animated color film, Flowers and Trees, which won the Academy Award, and the tales “Three Little Pigs – Lambert: The Sheepish Lion – Donald Duck.”
The first feature film after various attempts by the animated whale was the Disney Company in 1937, and it released a one-hour, twenty-eight-minute film, Snow White, which featured handwriting.
Eight years after Mickey Mouse’s appearance, in 1935 the Frankly brothers released the first Egyptian cartoon, Memphis Faida, to his then-famous hero, Apricot Effendi, a classic newspaper character under the title “Mickey Mouse’s Egyptian Brother Shows”.
In 1936, Apricot appeared at the center of the city’s Cosmograph.
Gaining so much appeal and interest among the public that the government began to notice the power of the cartoons and the brothers produced a diagram of Apricot centered on teaching farmers how best to deal with the gas parasites of cotton in 1937.
This worked, but the true potential of Mashash would be demonstrated by World War II At the time of joint Egyptian-British authorities, the “National Defense” would see Mashash mobilize his friends and respond to the call of arms.
