Here is a little collection of crude but oddly charming Spanish and French animation
, originally created for children's hand-cranked film projectors, from 1932 to 1952.
Also from Spain's Museu del Cinema
, here's a YouTube playlist
of several very short videos showing various early animation machines and devices like the Zoetrope and Reynaud's Toupie Fantoches and more.
NOTE: one of the animations included in the collection is, typically for the times, overtly racist in its depiction of grass-skirt wearing, big lipped African "natives". Posting this link should not, however, be seen as any kind of personal endorsement of this kind of racist stereotype.
