The History of Animation Sound

Nice recent piece by Kate Finan of Boom Box Post exploring the history of animation sound. Thanks to the Designing Sound blog for bringing this to my attention. The article goes into the processes used by Disney, Warner Brothers, Hanna-Barbera, etc...

Which reminds me of this lovely featurette from "Wall-E", wherein sound designer Ben Burtt ("Star Wars") relates the history of Disney's animation sound process in some detail, then tours the facility and demonstrates some of the sound tools used in the toons. I'll add it as a bonus here:
