Wasn't Thomas Edison the one who killed Topsy the elephant to show the power of electricity or something horrible like that? (I've learned a lot from Bob's Burgers)

0:34 Like would they just tell you that randomly, because I never once have just been talking to someone and they say “Oh, by the way Thomas Edison invented the moving picture camera in the 1800’s.” I don’t know if I’m hanging out with the wrong people or something. Is this a situation, or a question and answer type thing because who doesn’t know that Thomas Edison claims to have invented the motion picture camera?

Edison is one of the biggest snakes in history. It doesn't surprise me of his involvement. I know he stole ideas from Tesla, but didn't he steal ideas/inventions from Alexander Graham Bell? I might be mistaken about the latter, but still this foooking guy.

Edison is a big fraud! I doubt he personally even invented anything. He stole the inventions or had other people underneath him invent things. If anything, he was probably what a producer is to a film, ironically.

I don't believe that he just disappeared because he was not completely satisfied with his work. Also, he would not abandon his family. And where would he hide? He had no money and he's a giant even by today's standards.

This episode is so sad. Firstly, he (though I don’t know why) was apparently unable to obtain proper patents. Secondly, he was (presumably) murdered and by whom it is unknown. And thirdly, the credit for his invention for which he should be famous worldwide, was given to Edison. All that being said, I do not think Edison did it, as he did not start working on his own motion picture machine until later, so he was not even thinking about it yet, meaning he had no motive.

Patents are ridiculous to get. My company tried to get a patent for a cover on one of our non-reflective coating machines and they stated it was a dog bowl and already patented. We had to go through a lot of revisions to finally get it approved.

To be honest, I doubt Thomas Edison had any involvement in killing Louis Le Prince. I think Mr. Edison was a resourceful genius who used often aggressive tactics to position himself more favorably; for this, I actually respect him more. I do see it unfortunate that Louis Le Prince was unable to see the fruits of his labor; however, I feel Thomas Edison still deserves some credit for his camera -- as he did develop it without direct copying being performed.
