I just thought of one;

There was a Loony Toons short called "Duck Amuck."

For copyright purposes, this is only PART of it;



I would LOVE to go back to 1953 and watch this cartoon the first time it was shown. Not to watch the cartoon, but to watch the audience as they see this thing that demolishes the fourth wall for the first time.

To be fair I'm not sure if the 4th wall is demolished at all. That wall exists between the audience and the show. While he does talk to the animator in this part it is not the audience he addresses, at least in this clip.

There was a guy who performed with a cartoon. It was part of his touring show.

That's a point. The animator is the only one who talks directly to us.
However, the cartoon DOES demolish your sense of reality.
They remade it with Bugs being tormented by an unseen animator... it didn't works as well, the gags were too telegraphed and Bugs doesn't work so much as the put upon one. (Although the cartoon with him against a gremlin was epic.)

Doesn't Bugs turn out to be the animator in this one?

Didn’t want to give spoilers in case someone hadn’t seen it.
