We'd like to ease your mind regarding the recent visitations (abduction is such a dirty word). They're not experiments... they're invitations. That is, if you've got the brass be bearable for extended space travel...

That's a lie…it's a Triple Short! All one-reelers! An estimated 20 minutes for your animation edification!

1) Kobu Tori, 1929, Aoji Chuzo, Yokohama Cinema
From the western shores of the Pacific, the story of Kobutori Jiisan

…translated directly as "Lump-Taken Old Man" is a Japanese Folktale about an old man who had his lump (or parotid gland tumor) taken or removed by demons after joining a party of demons (oni) celebrating and dancing in the night.

-- from Wikipedia.


2) The Karnival Kid, 1929, Walt Disney, Celebrity Productions
From the opposite eastern Pacific shores of sunny Hollywood, CA, it's none other than Mickey and Minnie Mouse and singing frankfurters! According to user Dut…

It was the first short animation in which Mickey actually spoke and his first spoken words were "Hot Dogs!"


BONUS TRIPLE CROWN LINK:
Evil Mickey attacks Japan, 1934, Komatsuzawa Hajime, J.O. Talkie Manga-bu

Jonathon Crowe of openculture.com says of this one…

…this curious piece of early anti-American propaganda from 1936 that features a phalanx of flying Mickey Mouses…attacking an island filled with…other poorly-rendered cartoon characters [emphasis mine --Mongoose]. All seems lost until they are rescued by figures from Japanese history and legend. During its slide into militarism and its invasion of Asia, Japan argued that it was freeing the continent from the grip of Western colonialism. Of course, many in Korea and China, which received the brunt of Japanese imperialism, would violently disagree with that version of events.

Mongoose Says: A happy animated music video about the joys of living and loving.

No. It's not. It's not at all. But it's definitely worth seeing as is much of the other work by GetAFix Visuals.

Jim Tyer's Wiggly World (www.cartoonbrew.com)
submitted 9 months ago by [email protected] to c/[email protected]

Even as a kid watching the original Terrytoons cartoons I couldn't help noticing there was always something strange about 'em. They wiggled, wobbled and warped like no other cartoons I'd seen! And here's one of the main reasons why: animator Jim Tyer.

Enjoy Vincent Alexander's tribute to the rubbery animations of Jim Tyer over at CartoonBrew!

With all the present-day ugliness continuing far too long, here's something to remind us of the beauty that can be created.

From 1981, here is Roman Kachanov's beautifully animated children's story, The Mystery of the Third Planet, in its original form. With subtitles, yet!

Based on one of the Alisa Selezneva series of children's books by screenplay writer Kir Bulychev, Kachanov's film is beautfully animated using traditional cel animation techniques. No made-for-TV 4-frames-per-second job is this, the animation is technically spectacular. While parts are most likely rotoscoped, most of the film is not, demonstrating the grasp Kachanov and crew had on the art of movement.

Natalya Orlova's art direction and character design is a wonderful mix of Heinz Edelmann and eastern european design of the time (being mid-to late 1970s when production started). In my less-than-humble opinion, it is always refreshing seeing a style that isn't merely a Disney or Anime retread.

And dig that crazy sov-synth soundtrack by composer Aleksandr Zatsepin, (from the Wikipedia article) often described as a milestone in Soviet electronic music.

An animated film by French caricaturist, cartoonist and animator Émile Cohl. It is one of the earliest examples of hand-drawn animation, and considered by many film historians to be the very first animated cartoon. Despite appearances the animation is not created on a blackboard but rather on paper, the blackboard effect achieved by shooting each of the 700 drawings onto negative film. The title is a reference to the “fantasmograph”, a mid-19th century variant of the magic lantern that projected ghostly images on to surrounding walls.
