Six months and ten thousand drawings later, McCay is ready to win his bet. As the group dines, McCay presents his newest and most fantastic creation: Gertie the Dinosaur. Before the party's astonished eyes, the drawing of a prehistoric scene comes to life as Gertie emerges from a cave. Gertie dances, cries, eats a pumpkin, devours a large tree and more.
