One of the first films was a short about boxing cats
Well before the internet, people found cats doing silly things endlessly amusing. In 1894, Thomas Edison and his technicians made this film about a man who traveled the country with his boxing cats.
Professor Welton’s Trained Cat Circus boasted cats that rode bicycles, turned somersaults and walked through fire. But the boxing cats were the most popular of his attractions playing New York vaudeville houses and roof gardens during the summer of 1894.
