"NOTRE DAME RESEARCHERS COLLABORATE INTERNATIONALLY TO RECREATE ONE OF THE WORLD’S FIRST FULL-LENGTH ANIMATED FILMS"

At a time when World War I was beginning, Americans were using baseball, dance crazes, and vaudeville as forms of escape. One of the most innovative and new pieces of popular culture emerged in 1914 when Winsor McCay, a famous cartoonist and vaudeville performer, incorporated an animated cartoon called “Gertie” into his act. Despite its popularity at the time, the original film and the paper drawings for it have all but been forgotten over the past 100 years. But now Notre Dame researchers are working to change that by collaborating internationally to restore the film and to research the history surrounding its cultural impact.

How does relate to Fox? William Fox, the namesake to the various Fox media companies, got the rights from McCay to make a longer film. The "Little Nemo" movie streaming on CR is based off of McCay's early 1900s comic strip.

Well it's interesting that a university bearing the name "Our Lady" is doing this I agree. The OG anime is getting it's limelight in the 21st century. Funny how we went from early 20th century animation to Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid.
