Boring but interesting
26 February 2003 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

This cartoon is really dumb and out-moded but come on, this is history!

This is one of the first cartoon films and it was made in 1892 : five years before the Lumière brothers ! And it's in color, and it's not silent. In a word, this is not a masterpiece at all (the animation's all crappy, worst than South Park !) but it is basic and essential.
