Animation technology has come a long way since then - the Bray studio was possibly THE first commercial enterprise of its kind - but nothing has really changed. Well, except for the fact that everyone uses bottom pegs if they're still drawing on paper now.

Oh, and if anyone's wondering why they don't mention using plastic cels in this film, that would be because those hadn't been invented yet. Earl Hurd and J.R. Bray would invent and patent the process at the Bray studios two years after this film was made.

I love that the cartoonist is such a ham.

Wow, they had to re-draw the background on each frame?
