Who Framed Roger Rabbit

There must have been earlier films that combined live action with animation. Did Mary Poppins do it?
I lost 5 points in a pub trivia contest for believing Song of the South (1946) was the first film to combine live action and animation.

The correct answer is Anchors Aweigh (1945), starring Frank Sinatra and Gene Kelly. The animation comes in form of Jerry, the bloody mouse from the Tom and Jerry cartoon series.

The screaming pain of losing five points still echoes within me.
