    Earliest Animation?

    OTL, as i understand it, animation was super early in the twentieth century. But how early is it possible? Guilded Age? Progressive Era in the US? what might some effects be of this medium arising decades earlier?

    A simple task. One gives some ideas for how 2D animation could have stayed the rule even after the advent of CGI.
  11. An alternate history of animated films
    Threadmarks: 1940

    The premise of this project is one I already talked about here, but I've spent months doing research and thinking it out, and now I think I have a TL.

    Alternate TV Tropes pages.

    This is sort of a spin-off of @The Director's thread Pop Culture Oneshot Scenarios. Only now, it describes various aspects of what ever it is you can think of as if it was on a series of TV Tropes articles. YMMV, Nightmare Fuel, WMG, the works. Fire away, all.

    WI: Don Bluth is still at Disney

    Don bluth, who most may know for The Secret of Nimh, worked at Disney until he left in dissatisfaction in 1979. But what if he stayed? What would be the consequences for the company? Would their Renaissance start sooner? What?

We all know about the political effects of World War 1 and how it led the rise of the United States as a superpower. There are already many...
  20. Disney-Warner Fusion Dance

    If Disney (right before the "Renaissance") and Warner Bros. go bankrupt and somehow become one entity (being bought by a third party, perhaps), how might this change the future landscape of entertainment?
