I have always wondered what would happen with an infinite loop in all directions…

The Innovations of Fleischer Studios
Besides changing the face of animation by bringing the world the invention of the Rotoscope, as well as the concept and animation technique of "Follow the Bouncing Ball" sing-alongs, Max Fleischer and his studio also pioneered a revolutionary technique in animation, known as the “Stereoptical Process”.
In this process, a circular, 3-D model of a background - a diorama - is built to the scale of the animation cells. It allowed for a spectacular sense of depth and dimension, long before Ub Iwerks came up with the Multiplane. Within the model setup, the animation cells could be placed at varying levels from the scenery, and even between objects, so that foreground elements could pass in front of them, adding to the dimensional effect. It was an effective method for panning and tracking shots, which would require a turn of the table with each photographed cell of animation.
The process was used in many of the studio’s cartoons, particularly in their longer, “two-reel” shorts, such as Popeye the Sailor Meets Sindbad the Sailor (1936), Popeye the Sailor Meets Ali Baba’s Forty Thieves (1937), and Betty Boop in Poor Cinderella (1934) - the only color (albeit in two-strip Cinecolor), theatrical cartoon ever made starring the iconic animated songstress, which features her as a redhead!
So interesting :D
Possibly my favorite thing to happen during that period of animation.
THIS IS MY FAVORITE THING EVER
That last part tho.

That’s it. This is my next tattoo.
I’m so mad that that squiggly line isn’t needed.
yoooooo i was so disappointed. i had hopes for the squiggly line
I think it’s appropriate to bring this little gem back today.
THIS. Yes. This is by far the only time a major show did not make fun of the fans. Bless this.

Everyone who terrifies you is sixty-five percent water.
And everyone you love is made of stardust, and I know sometimes
you cannot even breathe deeply, and
the night sky is no home, and
you have cried yourself to sleep enough times
that you are down to your last two percent, but
nothing is infinite,
not even loss.
You are made of the sea and the stars, and one day
you are going to find yourself again.
