Winter Carousel is last animated short of Ladislaw Starewicz
Winter Carousel is the last short by the pioneering stop-motion puppet animator Ladislaw Starewicz. It mainly concerns a group of forest animals cavorting in the snow, skating, riding on tree branches, and sledding. While you may get some amusing touches here and there, this short does seem a little on the bland side. And since there is no real story to pay attention to, most kids will probably get bored. I found this on a DVD called The Cameraman's Revenge and Other Fantastic Tales. Among other Starewicz shorts in this collection: The Cameraman's Revenge (1912), The Insects' Christmas (1913), The Frogs Who Wanted a King or Frogland (1922), The Voice of the Nightingale (1923), and The Mascot (1933). All are worth seeing, so if you're an animation fan who's curious about this forgotten animator, by all means seek them all out!
