A long time coming

Try these on for size. (Questions by Vidyuth)

1. X was originally called “Jasper” in the very first animated short. Y had no name, though the animators decided to give him the nickname “Jinx”. Identify X and Y.

2.I’m looking for an exact term to describe this. What term?

3. Who is this relatively well known personality, and what is the significance of this picture?

4. And now it is time for a connect. (Exhaustive list, mind you)

5.  In West Africa persons  were made to pass a bird's egg to one another. The one who broke it was the culprit. In ancient China they were made to  hold a handful of rice in his or her mouth during a prosecutor's speech. The one whose rice was dry at the end was considered the culprit. These customs were the predecessors of what that is being used nowadays? And why, if possible?
