Thirties Thursday

Here's a fascinating look at how Walt Disney made their cartoons, long before CGI was even a glint in somebody's eye. Remember, in the '30s this was cutting-edge technology.



  1. One of my parents' friends was an artist for Disney, and he gave them 2 discarded cells, which hung in my bedroom until I was too old for Pluto and Donald Duck. Had my parents only known how much they'd be worth someday ... Hindsight is everything.

  2. Amazing! And so cutting edge back then. I think Snow White was the first movie-length cartoon, wasn' it? Watching them do all this must have taken forever. I love seeing how they made the sound effects, too.

  3. Terry; *sigh* Hindsight really is everything, isn't it?

    Elizabeth; I believe Snow White was the first feature-length animated movie. I'm floored at how much time it took, and awed by their artistic skills. I'm pleased if I can draw a stick figure.

  4. Elspeth - Thanks so much for sharing this! I truly salute those with that much creativity, and of course, I am green with envy at their artistic ability. Which is why I write. I do not draw. I mean really.

  5. Margot; I wish I could draw! I SO CAN'T. Let's just eat chocolate and drink wine instead.
