Where would film animation be without Winsor McCay? The iconic comic artist and animator brought his most popular creation to life in this little behind-the-scenes short. It’s just as charming as you can imagine.
McCay shows himself drawing every frame by hand (the cel animation concept was still being developed) and the grand finale of the picture features a brief, hand-colored animated sequence. It will charm your socks off.

If it were a dessert it would be: Aquarium Cookies. Bright, colorful, fun.
Availability: Released on DVD as part of Milestone’s Winsor McCay: Master Edition collection.
