Clip: Season 8 | 16m 57s

Our contributor has a box of cartoon drawings and cels. Host Tukufu Zuberi doesn't recognize most of the characters in these drawings, but the condition of the art leads him to believe they're old. What role did these drawings play in the history of animation? This investigation takes us through the early years of animation and introduces us to some of the unsung heroes behind the art.
