Closer to rotoscoping. Although I'd argue that rotoscoping is as proper of animation as anything.

If you enjoyed that, and you have not seen this documentary mini-series (100 Years of Horror), I highly recommend it. Good fun peppered with personal anecdotes by the host, Christopher Lee...and also randomly Hugh Hefner.

E is for Edward who choked on a peach.

F is for Fanny sucked dry by a leech.

Reminded me of how the first radar operators were staring at the cathode ray display, which did not use leaded glass.

Same for the first TV screens

Mom used to tell us not to sit too close to the TV because it was radioactive.

More recent CRT displays, and the older monochrome ones, do give off X-rays, but in miniscule amounts. Early colour TVs didn't have a safety circuit on the high voltage shunt regulator, and if that regulator failed, then they could put out a reasonable level of X-rays: best not to sit too close to those.
