made the thread bc the discussion everywhere seems to be centred around modern american animation (that, or anime), and i’d like to see some appreciation for more esoteric stuff. hope i’m not literally the only person on this site that‘s passionate about this subject kek. i’d be very curious to hear from non-english posters about stuff you watched!

to kick this off, this one has been my favourite piece of surrealist animation since i was like 5. had it on dvd.

samefag, an obscure animation I remember from my childhood is a russian animation about a poor girl and the twelve months of the year. I haven't seen it in a long time, but I remember loving the animation. It was dubbed in my language but idk about english. I've seen it's on youtube with subs though

Please enjoy this hand drawn (by one man!) feature film about pop music genres. Not sure if Bill Plympton counts as obscure though.

Great thread! Claymation is inherently creepy to me and adding Satan in to the equation makes this whole thing even creepier

I love this thread, I used to be obsessed with finding weird creepy animated short films

I adore them. Even the remake was good because they stuck to stop motion. There’s just something so soulless about cgi remakes.

My god I'm so excited about this thread. To start, here is my favourite music clip. It was made by only one women with 3000 hand drawn sketches. The plot is really surprising and the art is gorgeous.

Samefag but anyone else is waiting for Norstein's new film ? It's been so long since he started this project but his paper cut animation is pure magic at this point. I can't even begin to imagine the amount of time and technic to create such movements

Fantastic Planet is a lesser known animated movie that isn't mentioned much. French film in the 60's that ask a simple question: What if humans were treated as pets for an (equally or more) intelligent species? It does feature death and some torture elements but an interesting watch.
Also unique in that the movie was hand drawn on paper but used cutouts to animate it.
I think the full movie is still on Youtube.

one of my favorite short films of all time, La Maison En Petits Cubes. again, you can probably find better quality elsewhere, just wanted to draw attention to this.

also check out Kunio Kato's other works, they're all wonderful and incredibly unique.

One of my favorite pieces of animation. The art is so surreal and beautiful, the atmosphere feels like a dream.

>Tortov Roddle is a man of few words on a journey through a calm and obscure new land, interacting with its inhabitants along the way. As he rides on his long-legged pig through the desert from town to town, he observes the interesting and quirky customs of the locals and reminisces about his past.

til the animator is a huge creep who apparently groomed one of his students(?) and married her when she turned 18. this man is 62. the girl's an artist, probably a fan. dude has a lot of highly sus pictures of kids saved publicly on his vk profile (https://vk.com/vanechka_maximov) i shouldn't be surprised to be honest.

American Pop is the only Ralph Bakshi film I've seen that doesn't disgust me in some way. I actually love it and have seen it multiple times. It's made with a rotoscoping technique, with a really vibrant color palette. The story is basically a series of vignettes following the story of a family of Jewish immigration in New York and the music that's evolved through those generations. The ending is a pretty hilarious rock n roll acid trip type montage and its iconic. If you haven't seen it, I super recommend.

It's not old but I think it fits the thread well. La Casa Lobo (The Wolf House) is very cool and effort stop motion film about a girl's escape from nazi cult in Chile, which happened irl. It took a million years to finish the film.

No. 181643

I always thought this retelling of romeo and juliet was really cute and interesting. I'm surprised to find out now that the studio is sanrio films, who also made Chirin's Bell, another classical japanese animated film from that time period that I liked. Now I can sort of see the commonalities they share, it's neat. I wish the film studio still made serious kids films like this, instead of the moe stuff they make now.

No. 181652

I have no idea where my parents got it but we had this on VHS when I was a kid. I never watched it all the way to the end because the scene at the beginning with the seagulls made me too sad/scared. I used to have nightmares.

When I was a kid I watched a number of obscure cartoons probably all from Soviet Russia. The most known one being the bow wow cat one.
I really want to find the old raggedy Ann cartoon i watched as a kid. It was on one of the few blank tapes we had in my family and it was a really sweet cartoon.
It was about a little blind girl who raggedy ann teaches to "see" using her imagination. I really loved the more whimsically surreal animation.

I used to look up random foreign/old animations on Youtube. I remember this one (Russian) animation called the Dog Door about some stray dogs looking for a place to live. It ends kind of bittersweet though I suppose stuff like Disney makes you expect ending on a happier note.

Also (maybe not the right thread) but I remember seeing clips of a cartoon about a yellow looking bear/koala creature that was the last of his kind living in a forest of animals. I only remember it was not English it might've been European or Russian? I don't remember the name of it but it was animated cute

No. 181684

Russian koala might be Cheburashka. Not a perfect match but it does look yellowish in earlier versions and it's also the only of its species in cartoons/books
