The Enchanted Drawing is a silent film best known for containing the first animated sequences recorded on standard picture film, directed in 1900 by J. Stuart Blackton, who is because of that considered the father of American animation.
The film shows a man drawing a cartoon face on an easel. He draws a hat on the head and then a bottle of wine, a glass and a cigar. He then takes objects off the canvas and they go back into the image.
It is a combination of a silent film and stop motion animation.
