Mickey duels with Pirates
Here's one of my favorite Mickey cartoons from 1934. As I said a few times, I am quite terribly particular about that - a favorite cartoon short from a particular year. I the story, Mickey and Minnie were captured by Pete and his band of pirates. When Pete was making advance at Minnie, Mickey breaks free from his bonds and duels with the pirate captain. That's I'll tell you. Watch and see how it ends.
I really love this cartoon. Though I did found it odd that Mickey and Minnie didn't have any dialogue, except for Pete and his pirate crew; Minnie did scream too. The funniest part is when a pirate repetitively sings "The captain's got a girl" in a falsetto voice.
Flip Flap (1948)
Cute Little "Noveltoon" Cartoon
Here is a "Noveltoon" cartoon from Paramount Studios I had never heard or seen, until I had watched it on YouTube. After I saw it I really love it; also I as a had said before I love seals.
Well the story for this cute little cartoon is about a bored, little zoo seal name Flip Flap who runs away to the Frozen North after hearing about it from his parents. When he gets there, he meets a cute little seal girl. The two automatically fall in love...Oh but will it last? Why I said that? well you will just have to watch the cartoon and see.
So overall, this cartoon is so cute and I really love it; I don't really have a favorite scene.
Another Magical Girl favorite
I love magical-girl anime series, and this anime is one of my favorites, along with Princess Tutu, Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne, Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch and Sailor Moon.
The series is about sixteen-year-old Himeno Awayuki, adjusting to her new life as a millionairess' stepdaughter. But one day, she encounter a group of boys known as the seven Leife Knights. And the knights had choose Himeno to a heroine known as Princess Pretear to save the world from the Princess of Disaster.
There are parallels to fairy tales in this anime: Like Himeno's mother dies when she's very young, but her poor, novelist father remarries a wealthy widow with two daughters - just like in Cinderella. As for the Snow White fairy tale, there a few parallels. First: The 7 knights correspond to the 7 dwarfs - or 7 knights in the Russian version by Alexander Puskin. The title itself, is a superficial connection, bearing more in relation to the nature of Himeno's growth and role than to the actual Snow White tale. The kiss at the end of course comes from the awakening of the princess by her prince, including Snow White. The other parallel is the Queen and Snow White to Takako/Fenrir and Himeno.
I love Himeno & Hayate and I think they're a cute couple. Overall, this an excellent show to watch - thumbs up all the way!
Wild Waves (1929)
Mickey's Beach Toon
This is one of my favorite Mickey Mouse cartoons from 1929. In this short, Mickey has a job as a beach lifeguard. And while he was singing with seaside friends (the seals, the gulls, etc.), he spotted Minnie Mouse drowning. As it was his duty, Mickey came to the rescue. His seaside friends clapped and cheered, as he placed Minnie on the shore.
"Where am I?" was the distressed Minnie's words when she came too.; she began to cry. But fortunately, Mickey and the seaside critters put on a song-and-dance show to cheer her up.
So my overall opinion is that I really love this cartoon. I also noticed in later cartoons, there was recycled animation from this cartoon.
Farmyard Symphony (1938)
An Excellent Animal Opera
This is a wonderful cartoon of a farm that comes to life with popular classical tunes and the old Scottish folk song "The Campbells are Coming" for the scene with the marching geese. I love the baby animal in the cartoon, they are so cute! I love it when the little colt and calf sniff each other from both sides of the fence - animals do that to get to know each other. I also love the part where the rooster tries to woo a pretty hen and ends up chasing her; I love the "Hiya Toots".
So overall, this cartoon is an excellent animal opera with the vocal talents of Florence Gill, Clarence "Ducky" Nash and Billy Bletcher as the old bull.
Gegege no Kitarô (1985)
Best Kitaro remake
Here is another anime version of "Gegege no Kitarō" I really love besides the 1968 version. In case you folks don't know, Kitaro is my latest anime obsession since last summer.
A reason to love this remake is because it was made on my birth year - 1985; what an era I was born in. Another reason I love this version the best is because of the animation and design in it. Also the pairings I "shipped" like Kitaro & Yumeko Tendo...I' m sorry Kitaro & Neko-Musume shippers, true I like "friendship-turned-to-love" matches but I have my limit. Another pairing I ship is Nezumi-Otoko & Caroline from the movie "Gegege no Kitarō: Gekitotsu!! Ijigen Yōkai no Dai-Hanran"; I really, really wanna see that movie! After watching episodes online, I now have 23 favorite episodes. Like I had said many episodes are remakes of older episode stories and it is really hard for me to choose which version of an episode I love.
So anyway, I love both the 1968 and 1985 version out of the five anime versions of "Gegege no Kitarō." And I do hope the company "DiscoTek" would license the series as well as the movies to North American DVD.
Gegege no Kitarô (1968)
A must-see yōkai anime
I had first got interested in this anime when I was researching yōkai (Japan's spirits and monsters) on the web. I had seen Shigeru Mizuki's pictures and then I got curious and then looked him up as well as his famous "Gegege no Kitarō".
Kitaro started of as a manga in 1959 and it became successful that in 1968 an animated series was made by Toei Animation. Then other anime versions were made in: 1971, 1985, 1996, 2007. And in 2008, an 11-episode mini-series "Hakaba Kitarō" was made based on the "rental" manga "Gegege no Kitarō" came from. I'd typed "Gegege no Kitarō" on YouTube and I watched a "couple" of episodes; also on Dailymotion too. Now it is my latest anime obsession. The franchise became REALLY popular in Japan, but strangely unknown in North America.
The '68 anime series is one of my favorite versions of Kitaro, and I have 27 favorite episodes. You know, in the five anime series, many episodes are remakes of older episode stories and for me it is hard to choose which version I love. I love the rat-man Nezumi-Otoko. I know he's greedy, sneaky, conniving, lecherous and really smelly. But to me he's funny. And there are times when I would feel pity for him (like in episode #36 of the 1996 series): Being alone for centuries. No mother, no father, no siblings or even a "mate" to bear 'im children to carry his bloodline.
Overall, Kitaro is a must-see anime for those who are interested in the supernatural and Japanese monster folklore.
Animal Farm (1954)
Halas and Batchelor's adaptation of George Orwell's controversial novel
At first I wasn't sure if I should read George Orwell's controversial novel, because my sister studied it in school and she didn't like it much. But I had read it and I find it excellent - so is this film. As in the original novel, the story follows a farm animal revolution which at first was successful until Napoleon the corruptive Berkshire boar took matters in his own "trotters."
I find this film from England's Halas and Batchelor Cartoon Films really well-done and I don't consider is "Disney-ish" as some think with the dark, violent content that's in it. Also I really must commemorate on the one-man performance by Maurice Denham, the Mel Blanc of British radio. So overall, I love this beautifully animated film; though I would advise you folks NOT to show the film to your children around 7 to 10 years old.
A colorful, beautifully animated Aladdin
I had gotten curious after seeing clips on YouTube. So I had ordered this film version of Aladdin and the Magic Lamp and I love it. I find animation from underrated French animator Jean Image is almost U.P.A-ish. Now, this film stays true to the original Arabian Nights tale and I found it colorful, beautifully animated and with a musical wonderful soundtrack. I love it when Aladdin serenades to the princess; other then that, I have no other favorite scenes because I love this film from beginning to end.
You know, I had watched a few versions of Aladdin and it was hard to choose which version is the best. So I would say that this version and the Japanese anime version that was made 12 years later are the best versions. So overall, I like I said I love this movie.
The Secret of Kells (2009)
One of the best animated movies ever made in Europe
I had gotten curious when I heard about this film. So I had ordered it online and after I had watched it...I loved it! To me, it was an eye-popping experience.
This film is fictional account of the creation of The Book of Kells, an illuminated Latin manuscript containing the four Gospels of the New Testament. The book is famous for its elaborate illuminations depicting both Celtic knotwork and Christian imagery. The film's young hero Branden is taken under the tutelage of Brother Aidan, a celebrated master illuminator to help complete the precious book before Viking raiders attack the Abbey of Kells. Branden also receives help from a young fairy girl name Aisling.
So that is all I could tell you folks, and overall Kells is one of the best animated movies ever made in Europe with plenty of fantasy, adventure, a litte bit of humor and beautiful animation. Also I do love the little cat Pangur Bán...she (or he) is cute!
