Humorous Phases of Funny Faces

Title Card

Humorous Phases of Funny Faces is a 1906 silent animated work directed by James Stuart Blackton. It is regarded by film historians as the first animated film recorded on Standard Film, and is often cited as America's first animated Cartoon.


In the cartoon, animated hand-drawn scenes appear on a chalkboard, such as a clown playing with a hat and a dog jumping through a hoop. In the beginning the cartoonist's hands are included, too, which are then left out, using stop-motion.
