Three best animated things ever.

Got forced into this today. And I surprised myself with my answers. Also surprised by how old everything on the list is. There was a time when animation was inventive and brave.

Twice Upon A Time (uncensored version only)
Mouse in Manhattan

Ralph Bakshi's Lord of the Rings gets an honorable mention.

No order. Mouse in Manhattan is perfect by the way. A 7 minute version of every MGM musical in the 40s to 60s. Animation is unreal. Brilliant!


  1. Read about you in the NIU book and am delighted to find this blog. I totally agree with you on movies. I am old enough to have seen all those Capra movies when they first came out. I am going to go back and read what you wrote about other directors. I probably see two movies a year now. It is so difficult to find anything that is not intended for an adolescent boy.

  2. Interesting.. I'll be sure to check them out ;)
