What is animation? Well in Professor Vibeke Sorensen's words, ‘Animation is the art of motion, and art is motion”. When you put 10 to 12 pictures together each second your eyes will think they are seeing movement, that is animation.

Steamboat Willie was the first film that had sound tied to animation, which pushed and made sound in some of the wonderful shows and movies today.

The first 24 hour all cartoon channel from Tunner Broadcasting was Cartoon Network. “The Great Piggy Bank Robbery” is the first cartoon to air also.
Even if the development of animation has taken a couple of decades to really pick up, it has grown into a great way for you to laugh, cry, and sing. The better expansion in the utensils, from pencils and paper to computers will Illustrator program, animators have grown in so many successful ways.
