Animation Timeline: Entry 16 - The Adventures of Andre and Wally B (1984)

The Adventures of Andre and Wally B is the first ever animation short to come out of John Lasseter. Lasseter created the short in 1984 and which features the worlds first CG animation with characters and a story. At the time of production the short was created by Lasseter and the Lucasfilm computer graphics project, which then eventually became PIxar.

It was this groundbreaking piece of animation which inspired many more animations to be produced using CG. Not only did this short use characters and a story in CG for the first time, it also used motion blur and the fundamentals of hand drawn animation.
