    This trope goes back to at least the 1930's - allthetropes.org/wiki/Spinning_Paper

    Just because it fits into a specific tag does not mean it isn't trivia. Why is this important, frankly IMO it's not so it's trivia? Honestly I dislike first-appearance questions except for truly unique/unusual issues but that's just me.

    Sometimes 'first appearance' questions get a really good press; other times… not so much. IDK why. movies.stackexchange.com/questions/51301/…

    @Paulie_D Counterargument: because you don't think it's important it's trivia? :) I realize they are not mutually exclusive, but closing this as trivia suggests the nature of the first-appearance question is trivial (which it still might be, but something we'd have to concede).
