Winsor McCay inducted into National Film Registry

Winsor McCay, the creator of the Little Nemo comic strip, has been inducted into the National Film Registry. McCay worked on a Little Nemo film which mixed animation with live-action in 1911. The Library of Congress stated, “its fluidity, graphics and story-telling was light years beyond other films made during that time. A seminal figure in both animation and comic art, McCay profoundly influenced many generations of future animators, including Walt Disney.”

All of McCay’s work was light years ahead of it’s time!
