"Plane Crazy" (1928) [1 of 3] - Ub Iwerks Pencil

This is the last item I have from "Plane Crazy." While I may be wrong, it seemed like much of the movement in early animation was pretty two-dimensional (lateral movement)-- much like early video games.

While there was some movement from back to front (e.g., where Gertie the Dinosaur walks toward the camera), I thought this scene from "Plane Crazy" was pretty innovative in creating a totally impossible point-of-view. The effect is actually similar to the airplane scene in "North by Northwest."
