Fantasmagorie: The First Animated Film

Today, we’re adding to our collection of Free Online Movies a great little film by Emile Cohl, otherwise known as “The Father of the Animated Cartoon.” Made in 1908, Fantasmagorie stitched together 700 drawings, each double-exposed, creating the first fully animated film. Cohl made over 250 films between 1908 and 1923, of which 37 survive in film archives. And several – Le cauchemar de Fantoche (1908) and The Hasher’s Delirium (1910) – appear right here on YouTube.
