Max Fleischer - The Ouija Board (1920)
"Out of the Inkwell was a major animation series of the silent era produced by Max Fleischer from 1918 to 1929. They featured Fleischer's invention, the Rotoscope, which consisted of a film projector and easel used as an aid for achieving realistic movement for animated cartoons. The Rotoscope would project motion picture film through an opening in the easel, covered by a glass pane serving as a drawing surface. The image on the projected film was traced onto paper, advancing the film one frame at a time as each drawing would be made."
