Trivia / Gertie the Dinosaur

  • Accidentally Accurate: At one point in the beginning, Gertie swallows a rock for no apparent reason. However, there is fossil evidence that real life sauropods swallowed stones to aid in digestion (they didn't chew their food, so the stones ground the food up for them).
  • Doing It for the Art: Winsor McCay hand-drew every single frame. Without cels. (An assistant did the backgrounds.)
