my childhood memory
19 February 2004 | by (San Francisco, CA) – See all my reviews

My grandmother gave me two videos when I was a child, one of Betty Boop and one of Popeye. I really liked them as a kid, and now I'm taking a history of animation class and we just went over some Betty Boop cartoons. It reminded my of that video so long ago, so in my paper I mentioned the movie. It's a very surreal and entertaining cartoon. I've always found the old animations to be creepy, only now have I realised why, they don't use any of the physical laws that the new cartoons tend to stick with. Nothing stays the same shape, everything is alive, it's quite creepy, and fun.
