Fun Observances

International Animation Day

October 28 is International Animation Day. It's a day to recognize and celebrate the artists, the scientists and the technicians behind animated art including animated movies.

Animation of cat and dog.

Created by the International Animated Film Association (Association Internationale du Film d'Animation) in 2002, the unofficial holiday commemorates the day in 1892 when Charles-Emile Reynaud’s Theatre Optique made its first public appearance at the Grevin Museum in Paris, France.

Optical Theater

Theatre Optique or Optical Theater was a machine that used a projector and mirrors to create images on a screen. The images were painted on a ribbon wound into a spool. Another spool unwound the ribbon as the images were projected on the screen.

Acting as his own projectionist and accompanied by a pianist, Reynaud showed 3 cartoons during the show. Each cartoon was 15 minutes long and was created by putting together about 600 individually drawn images on the ribbon.

Moving Static Images

Animation is the process of creating moving images by displaying static images in quick succession. Each image differs from the previous image very slightly, and it is these differences that create the movement in the sequence.

Traditionally, animated sequences were created by hand-drawn pictures and paintings. Today, technological advances have made it possible for artists to create images directly on a computer.

How to Celebrate?

  • Watch animated movies and learn about the science and art behind the movies.
  • Encourage the young artists in your life to take up animation as a future career.
  • Learn how to make your own animated movies using just your phone or your computer.

Caller: I just wanted to let you know you’re off the air.

Host: Yes, we know. The engineers are working on it.

Caller: It would be nice if you put something on the air that says that.




I phoned a local restaurant to 
ask if it was on the north or south side of Main Street.

The person on the other end answered, “That 
depends on which direction you’re coming from.”




We can’t all live on a street with a pleasant name like Oak or Elm. Here are the least popular street names (that we hope don’t exist):

• Drinkand Dr.

• Vicious Circle

• West 943,185th Street

• Psycho Path
