Watchmen as Saturday Morning TV Cartoon

Here's a Watchmen trailer that's done as if it were a cheesy Saturday morning TV cartoon. It was made by animator Harry Partridge (aka Happy Harry). It's got an absurdly perfect theme song to go along with dead-on-the-money TV-style animation. I bet it's way better than the movie!

Coraline: Official Film Trailer

Coraline is the stop-motion animated feature film of Neil Gaiman's novel. It is directed by Henry Selick and released by Focus Features. It's about a little girl who discovers an alternate reality in her home that is like a more interesting mirror image of her real life. The trailer looks really good. It's nice to see stop-motion animation like was done in The Nightmare Before Christmas. The effects were apparently all done by hand with miniature sets.

The Cat Came Back: Hilarious Animation

The Cat Came Back is a 1988 Oscar-nominated animation by Cordell Barker. It is simply one of the funniest cartoons I have ever seen. It's based on an old folk tale about a man who tries desperately to get rid of an unwanted cat. Be careful. Really. This will make you laugh so hard your entire head might explode. Mine did.

Incredible 'Buck Rogers in the 25th Century' Film

Absolutely magnificent work is on display here from filmmaker Patrick de Leon. His 'Buck Rogers in the 25th Century' is one of the very best examples I have seen of online science fiction film. This guy is just exploding with talent and skill. His visual sense is astounding and his mastery of the old B movie sci-fi serial style is simply perfect. This is what internet video is all about. This is why the world is different now. I would rather watch this filmmaker's Buck Rogers films than most of what is shown on television. I sincerely hope this filmmaker creates many more of these. If he does, we'll show them here... every single one. Enjoy this fantastic science fiction treat!

County Ghost - Episode 3 Online

Mike Geiger has posted episode 3 of his County Ghost animated web series. 'Coast to Coast Ghost' has our delightful and naughty little ghost stealing moonshine and reveling in the moonshiner's desperate attempts to get it back. The cartoon is full of character and makes me laugh. I love the slightly retro drawing style that reminds me of things on TV from Hannah Barbera in the 60s. I think the County Ghost is a character many viewers will enjoy.
