GROUP DGROUP DSOMETHING ABOUTCARTOON’S HISTORY• A cartoon is a form of two-dimensional illustrated visual art. While the specific definition haschanged over time, modern usage refers to a typically non-realistic or semi-realistic drawing orpainting intended for satire, caricature, or humor, or to the artistic style of such works. An artistwho creates cartoons is called a cartoonist.• Walt Disney was born on December 5th, 1901, in Chicago and died on December 15th, 1966, inCalifornia L.A.• He was an American movie producer, director, scriptwriter and cartoon designer.• Cartoons are movies in which drawn figures star instead of actors. The heroes are usuallyanimals or fictional creatures with funny faces that speak and react as if they were human beings.The creation of cartoons as well as other movies is based on metaisthima.• At first the scenes of the cartoon movie were drawn separately. The first drawings were put ontransparencies and then drawn to create a moving cartoon hero. Every drawing was slightlydifferent from the next one. Then all drawings were photographed on the row and so the wholefilm was made. When the film was shown the figures looked like they were really moving.• The first cartoons’ film was shot by S. Blakton in 1907, but Walt Disney’s movies were real worksof art.
THESE ARE THE CARTOONS WE DEALEDWITH:1.Inspector Gadget2.Raining Meatballs3.Barbie4.Mickey Mouse5.Ratatouille
HERE ARE SOME USEFUL INFORMATION ABOUT OURWORK:• The cartoons are movies that enjoy young and older people as well.Through cartoons we watch technology developing, and newgadgets appearing that are very useful to mankind. We also followthe development of new methods of preventing crime through theuse of these gadgets. Moreover, family issues are touched upon, forexample the fact that babies are ‘delivered’ by a stork in somecartoons. This shows that the heroes want to continue behaving inan innocent way towards kids. However in ‘Barbie’ series we have awedding taking place but not children being born. Except for that,cartoons often show the customs and the culture of a people, itstraditions and habits. In every cartoon friendship plays an extremelyimportant role in the relationships of the heroes; pets are alwaysdepicted as the hero’s best friend as well. The world sees down onless bright heroes and tries to lessen their confidence andsmartness.• The innocent and less evil heroes are the ones that always win.• There is always a pet that befriends the heroes.
