‘Chicken Little’ – A Children’s Story Or 1943 War Propaganda? (Original Film Version)

You will be absolutely amazed at the not-so-subtle message in this original Disney children’s cartoon of ‘Chicken Little’.

It even includes a scene with Foxy Loxy reading a copy of – brace yourself – ‘Mein Kampf’ – No. That’s not a joke. See for yourself. (1943 – Chicken Little)

The actor playing Ebenezer Scrooge in this FIRST AMERICAN adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol is Thomas B. Ricketts.

(January 15, 1853 – January 19, 1939) Ricketts was a London-born American stage and film actor and director who was a pioneer in the film industry. He also directed one of the first motion pictures ever made in Hollywood.

After directing scores of silent films, including the first film to be released by Universal Pictures, Ricketts became a prominent character actor.

The Very First Known ANIMATION – Émile Cohl’s ‘Fantasmagorie’ (1908) It’s FUNNY! (VIDEO)

I love knowing pieces of entertainment industry history and this is a special one.

French caricaturist, cartoonist and animator Émile Cohl, created the first known animated film, Fantasmagorie.

Available in the public domain here:

One of the earliest examples of hand-drawn animation is Fantasmagorie and widely considered the very first animated cartoon.

The animation may look like it was created on a blackboard, but it’s not. It’s written on paper. The blackboard effect was achieved by shooting each of the 700 drawings onto negative film.

The title is a reference to the “fantasmograph”, a mid-19th century variant of the magic lantern that projected ghostly images on to surrounding walls.

I hope you enjoy this bit of entertainment history.


Wishing you much imagination…
