The Enchanted Drawing is a 1900 silent film directed by J. Stuart Blackton. It is best known for containing the first animated sequences recorded on standard picture film, which has led Blackton to be 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.
