Okay, then 1973's feature film Westworld had 2D computer animation.

We have a winner.

I'm not sure I'd call it "computer animation" per se, but the scenes showing a pixellated display as the android's point-of-view were done by Information International, Inc., by taking film originals, performing optical color separation, scanning the three resultant B&W slides per frame, pixellating them, and then re-composting them back to 70mm color film.

Triple-I, as they are known, later went on to create the Foonly F-1 (an extremely hot-rodded clone of a PDP-10) which was used to create much of the CGI in TRON.

Look at the big brain on Braineack!

Yup. 1976. Both an articulated wireframe rendering of Dr. Edwin Catmull's left hand (with hidden-line removal) and a rotating solid-model rendering of a face. Very cutting-edge stuff.

I've found some conflicting information regarding The Andromeda Strain (1971) as well. Robert Abel & Associates (another CG pioneer which also contributed to TRON) are credited with visual effects, however most sources indicate that the "computer graphics" in this film were produced conventionally and then passed through a telecine process.

For some reason, The Andromeda Strain really creeped me out.
