* ToyStory, and to that extent all of Creator/{{Pixar}}, is the crowning pioneer for AllCGICartoon. Before ToyStory, computer animation was mainly used in special effects or commercials and short films and in 1995 the idea of a fully computer animated film was preposterous. And nowadays they're considered the norm.

** Stories in which people are thrust ''forward'' long periods of time trace back to ''{{Mahabharata}}'', in the eighth century B.C, the Ur-Example of YearOutsideHourInside. Similar ancient tales about traveling forward in time include the story of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honi_HaM%27agel Honi HaM'agel]] in the Literature/{{Talmud}} (by way of RipVanWinkle) and the Japanese tale of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urashima_Taro Urashima Taro]] (another Year Outside, Hour Inside).

For instance, one of the pivotal Trope Makers of the DetectiveStory is Creator/EdgarAllanPoe's collection of Literature/CAugusteDupin stories; before Dupin, there is no story ''genre'' of fictional detectives going about the business of solving crimes. Nevertheless, while you may or may not know Poe's Dupin stories, you've [[TheZerothLawOfTropeExamples probably encountered]] a certain Danish Prince named Theater/{{Hamlet}}, who not only sets about to ensnare his uncle [[VillainWithGoodPublicity King Claudius]], but even incorporates into his plans a [[MetaFiction play-within-a-play]] he dubs "The Mousetrap". And half a millennium earlier still, "The Tale of the Three Apples" is a proto-DetectiveStory from [[Literature/ArabianNights The Book of One Thousand and One Nights]] - which makes "The Tale of the Three Apples" the Ur-Example of the DetectiveStory, or at least a possible candidate. However, Theatre/OedipusRex, first performed in 429 B.C., depicts Oedipus investigating the cause of the plague that has struck his realm.

* The Ur-Example of the DetectiveStory might be "The Tale of the Three Apples," from ''[[Literature/ArabianNights The Book of the One Thousand and One Nights]]'' (Arabic: كتاب ألف ليلة وليلة‎ - kitāb 'alf layla wa-layla; Persian: هزار و یک شب - Hezār-o yek shab). While it's difficult to say exactly how ancient the roots of the story go, we can say it probably dates back ''at least'' to the fourteenth century A.D., since that's when ''[[Literature/ArabianNights The Book of One Thousand and One Nights]]'' was compiled.

* First popular animated cartoon character? ''WesternAnimation/GertieTheDinosaur'', from the UsefulNotes/WorldWarI era. First animated cartoon with an episodic narrative? An adaptation of ''Film/LittleNemoInSlumberland'', done just before the war. First animated cartoon of ''any'' kind? [[BreadEggsMilkSquick A mosquito bites a man in his sleep and sucks up so much blood that it explodes.]] (That's right, ''WesternAnimation/ItchyAndScratchy'' did not invent {{Gorn}} in animated cartoons.)

* The first modern MusicVideo is often (though not universally) considered to be [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AA9tw_ohmhM this thing]] for Music/BobDylan's "Subterranean Homesick Blues" from ''Music/BringingItAllBackHome'', produced in 1965, which was filmed in the documentary ''Film/DontLookBack''. That depends on how one defines "modern," as the music videos of Music/TheBeatles (among others) predate this. So-called "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illustrated_Songs illustrated songs]]" - early precursors of the music video - date back to the beginning of the 20th century, and "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musical_short musical shorts]]" were hugely popular by 1926, before the official end of the "silent" era of film.

* ''Wilderness: A Survival Adventure''(1985) was the first SurvivalSandbox game, over two decades before ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' popularized the genre. It also was one of the first games, if not the first, to feature a [[ProceduralGeneration procedural]] [[RandomlyGeneratedLevels map generator]].
