“The Artist’s Dream!”

On June 12, 1913, The Artist’s Dream (aka The Dachshund) was the first animated cartoon created with cel animation.  Produced by John Randolph Bray, and using clear sheets of acetate, the cartoon depicted Bray drawing a dachshund that continued to eat sausages to the point of exploding.
