The Centaurs by Winsor McCay

A female centaur (a creature half-human and half-horse) enters a clearing in the woods, and picks some flowers. She is soon met by a male centaur, and the two then romance each other. They then seek parental consent for their union.

Only a small part of this cartoon survives, about a minute and a half of lovely images by the foremost cartoonist of the the early 20th century. Several of Winsor McCay's cartoons are considered classics of the art, such as GERTIE THE DINOSAUR and THE SINKING OF THE LUSITANIA, but the draftsmanship and execution of these remnants, along with the Fleischer Superman cartoons, make it the most beautiful animation in the history of the art.
