One of my favorites is the 1968 Italian feature "Vip, mio fratello superuomo" (The Super-Vips) by Bruno Bozzetto, the man behind the popular Signor Rossi cartoons:

@ soundtrackmusic- Interesting style. Reminds me of UPA animation.

Who here remembers Hercules?!



Another show I loved as a kid.

I know it's not animated but I doubt there will be a thread for puppet shows. This is one show that I loved when I was younger - I think it may have also been called the Undersea gang.

The Waterville Gang - 1973

Puppets, and stop motion welcomed in this thread.

Nah, because world destruction just leads to ROCK & RULE:

I still have the comic book adaptation (though I guess it's just stills from the film with word balloons). cool

My continued ownership of that comic would explain my unlimited success with women over the years.

Misty Water-Colored Memories Dept.

In seventh grade, "Rock & Rule" was brought to my attention by a neighborhood pal of mine who was the only person I ever knew who owned a complete run of "Dr. Strange" comics. He was an accomplished artist and was working on a sequel or some fan fiction of R&R and based his drawings on people he knew--he based his take on the weasily manager (Milo?), or at least his hair, on my own then-floppy 'do.

Animalympics

I always found this little known gem mildly amusing. The tone and style was similar to a Warners Bros cartoon, but more kid friendly. Enjoyed the Howard Cosell and Barbara Walters parodies. It was a clever take off of the Olympics.



Romie-0 and Julie-8

An early animated special by Nelvana who also produced Rock and Rule and went onto animating the very first Star Wars cartoon which introduced Boba Fett.

Hans Christian Anderson's The Little Mermaid

Long before Disney's The Little Mermaid there was a Japanese version who's ending more closely followed the fairy tale. Also note Disney borrowed some plot devices and characters from the Japanese version. Much like Disney borrowed a lot from Jungle Emperor Leo when they made The Lion King.





Jack and the Beanstalk- 1974

I remember seeing this on pay cable in the 80's. Don't know much about it, but I assume it's Japanese. Surprised Disney never made a full length feature film from this fairy tale.

Trying to remember an anime movie that was broadcast on cable in the 80's. It was sort of a rip off of Fantasia. The story centered around a young boy in music class. I think he meets some kind of fairy and gets shrunk down in size, like "Honey I Shrunk The Kids".


Answering my own question I found it! Here's a pour quality Greek dub.

A Journey Through Fairyland

They are...the forthcoming Gigantic.



Anyways, saw this 1986 British feature for the first time recently:



Beautifully-animated and compelling, but DEEPLY sad and depressing. frown

Ha, to funny! Nice to see them working on their own version- finally.

The Wild Swans (1962)

A beautifully animated adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen tale from the Soyuzmultfilm library (and featuring an equally beautiful score by Aleksandr Varlamov)

I recall a Japanese cartoon back in the mid-sixties that had these characters that traveled around in a huge tire. There was a class bubble in the middle of the tire and that's where the "heroes" of the cartoon would ride in this giant tire as they traversed the landscape. Now, I haven't seen this since the sixties -- just as I haven't seen Gigantor since then either -- but either this was a real cartoon or I'm just imagining it. Anybody else here recall it?

Interesting, doesn't ring a bell for me. I wonder if it was like "puppetoon", or are you sure it was 2D animation? The Japanese did some puppetoon stuff too.

It had the same look as Gigantor and Speed Racer.

@ DOGBELLE- An old classic. They really perfected the rotoscope process with that film.

@ AcktheCobbler- Cool, I’ll have to watch that. I’m pretty unfamiliar with Eastern Europe animation.

I'll have to research this unless someone else recalls the show.

Based on a quick google search I'd say it was Wonder Three.
