Gertie, a cartoon dinosaur in the earliest animated film, celebrates her 100th birthday today.
Happy Birthday, Gertie!

I remember watching this in film history class. Not only was "Gertie" one of the first fully animated shorts, it was also an interactive film (McCay would remain on the stage while the film played and "talk" to Gertie. I think he throws her a pumpkin at some point too LOL).

I love McCay, and Emile Cohl. Such crazy visionaries.
