The first computer-animated feature?
3 February 2009 | by (DC) – See all my reviews

According to the David A. Price book, "The Pixar Touch," this production may lay claim to being the first computer-animated feature.

Developed largely by technicians without previous animation experience, even many of the people who worked on it were dismayed at how bad the animation quality was. It took a few more years before computer animation actually was recognized as the powerful tool it has become in features by Pixar and others, not to mention special effects work in many other "live action" films.

However, I note with interest that some comments dislike the story itself and don't speak to the production quality, so maybe the piece holds up after all.

PS - Fans of animation will find the Price Pixar history fascinating.
