We propose an interactive method for assisting the coloring process of 2D hand-drawn animated cartoons. It segments input frames (each hand-drawn drawing of the cartoon) into regions (areas surrounded by closed lines. E.g. the head, the hands) extracts their features, and then matches the regions between frames, allowing the user to fix coloring mistakes interactively. Its main contribution consists in storing matched regions in lists called "chains" for tracking how the region features vary along the animation. Consequently, the matching rate is improved and the matching mistakes are reduced, thus reducing the total effort needed until having a correctly colored cartoon.
