A little history of Steamboat Boat Willy

If you can't tell Steam Boat Willy is always played before every Disney movie. But that is just a short part of the cartoon. It was made in 1928 and is the first Disney cartoon ever made. Why its seems so badly made is because Walt Disney drew it by hand.

Where the word "cartoon" came from

The word originated from France and means " strong heavy, pasteboard" Kind of odd definition don't you think?

The first colored animated cartoon

The first colored animated cartoon "Flowers and Trees" The cartoon was originally black and white, but when Walt Disney saw the color tests, he decided that Flowers and Trees was the perfect cartoon to put in color. Because of the success of Flowers and Trees he decided to put all cartoons in "Silly Symphonies" in three strip Technicolor.
