From Hollywood history:

1937 Disney releases “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” – the first animated feature – using the new Three-Strip Technicolor process.

From Wikipedia,

Based on the German fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm, it is the first full-length cel animated feature film in history, the first produced in full color, the first to be produced by Walt Disney Productions, and the first in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series.

@SomnathMuluk, From the very same link: 1937 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Walt Disney's initial foray into the world of full-length animation and the first such production to emerge out of the United States, is released. That pretty much answers your question. – Mistu4u Dec 23 '12 at 18:35
