Animation in China, stretching across an 80-year period, has had many milestones, including what have been described as the two golden ages––1957–1966 and for about a decade from 1978 to the late 1980s. This essay concentrates on the beginning years, 1920s–1940s, since Asian Cinema has already dealt with post-1949 Chinese animation (see Lent and Xu, Fall- Winter 2001; Xu, Fall-Winter 2002.)
