Animation Timeline: Entry 04 - J. Stuart Blackton (1875 - 1941)

James Stuart Blackton created Humorous Phases of Funny Faces in 1906 which is generally considered as the first animated film.

The animation is made up of chalk drawings of faces drawn on a blackboard which then react with each other. As well as using line drawings to create animations, it also uses cut-out drawings made to look like chalk line drawings which shows some of the first examples for stop motion animation.
