Émile Cohl Flipbook
THE FATHER OF THE ANIMATED CARTOON, Émile Cohl (1857 – 1938) was a French caricaturist of the largely forgotten Incoherent Movement, cartoonist, director and animator, known as the “Father of the Animated Cartoon". Cohl’s short film Fantasmagorie (1908) is considered the first fully animated cartoon film. It is made up of 700 drawings, each of which was double-exposed, giving a running time of almost two minutes. Despite the short running time, the piece was packed with material devised in a "stream of consciousness" style.
