(of "Little Nemo in Slumberland" fame) and George Herriman
(of "Krazy Kat" and "Archie & Mehitabel") weren't just innovative, influential cartoonists; they were also pioneering animators. The Library of Congress' Origins of American Animation
project has downloadable short films by McKay (including his celebrated Gertie the Dinosaur
) and Herriman as well as others from the early, early days of animated film.
