MANILA, OCTOBER 12, 2012 – Did you know that the first cartoons were dated as far back as 40,000 BC? Ancient mankind drew some of the very first cartoon character art on the walls of their caves. One of them is Zomo, a trickster rabbit who was very similar to Bugs Bunny. He is one of the earliest cartoon characters on record.
In 4,000 BC, the Greeks created "mosaics" – pictures created using all kings of different materials like glass. Mosaics were used to show stories of deities and heroes, many of which are basis for current cartoons on TV.
