Comment on 4- The Enduring Qualities of Gertie the Dinosaur by Caroline Menna

This is true as the audience we do enjoy being able to connect with the character well and we do this especially so when we recognize differant characteristics within a cartoon. In this case with gertie, for example seeing her chew like a cow and walk like an elephant is a great way of illustrating this point in seeing her do these things we can relate to her better because even though we may not think these things conciously we do see them subconsiously and by doing so we better relate to any character. By being able to relate we are more a part of the viewig process and when we feel more enthralled by a picture we are more likely to come back to see it again.
