Newspaper comic strips were the predecessor of animated cartoons.
Thousands of years ago, animation was seen very early in cave drawings to portray the caveman’s method of trapping prey. For example, it would show bison running along and falling into a pit. Or in Greece, acrobats were shown in motion on vases.
Today, to make his or her drawings move, an artist has to produce 24 drawings for every second of on-screen time, corresponding to twenty-four pictures (or frames) per second of sound movie camera or projector.
Because of production costs, animation was forced out of the entertainment or creative field and into advertising.
