30 Day Animation Loop Challenge Day 12: Animation Firsts (personal firsts, or historic firsts)

For the month of July, we’re going to be focusing on the world of animation and that means going through a lot of very different elements of it. Thanks to Mr. Ixolite for the prompts!

When was the first time you saw CG animation? How did it impact you at the time? When was the first time you saw a character that resonated with you in an animated show? What animated film might not be your favorite, but you respect it for pioneering something in terms of technique or content? Please share!
