Re: The Classic Animation Thread
The second one (the highway man) to me was more creepy from beginning to end than beautiful. Feel free to disagree.
I really enjoy the retro look of the new Mickey Mouse series of shorts. Also, Speaking of Disney's golden age toons, if you like the classic Disney/RKO cartoons, the series they released are in beautiful metal tins, and contain commentaries from Leonard Malton, one of the few critics I tolerate. The series are half animated shorts and half live-action specials. Noteworthy is the Choronolgical Donald (Duck), worth getting. My favorite Donald videos feature his nephews, especially ones where they ty to do something nice for Donald but he thinks they're up to no good! Donald's Happy Birthday is a good example of that, and under today's MMPA would absurdly be rated R.
But personally, I love the specific Goofy cartoons that were presented in documentary style. Motor Mania is a perfect example of this style. I'm sure these are on youtube or somewhere.
