    The Wrong Trousers - the train chase

    Amazing stuff, character-filled as ever and this particular scene conveys rattling speed in stop motion.

    And speaking of stop motion:

    Jason And The Argonauts - the skeletons

    Because they're still creepy as all get-out.

    I love this clip from Aardman's Creature Comfort series. It's just so charming...

    All of it is twisted, but around the seven minute mark it gets, well. Fucking awesome.

    Don't think I can embed this straight from the guys site, but I love this little animation set to the tune of Radioheads "Creep".

    Didn't love the movie really, but I thought this worked really well.

    Okay, I tried to embed the trailer for this but it doesn't look like it worked. Anyway, here, this is the whole thing: Old Fangs

    The Amazing Screw-On Head

    Mike Mignola's art style animated? You can't lose!

    When the Wind Blows

    I love the different animation techniques they employed. Also, seems there are quite a few post-apocalyptic movies, but few movies that take place during a nuclear attack.

    Ralph Bakshi's Wizards

    As a child Wizards cartoonish characters caught my attention, but the war and Nazi imagery left a lasting impression on my mind.

    Song by Chage and Aska, animation direction by Hayao Miyazaki.

    I see no mention of Bill Plympton yet, so here's a short clip from his feature-length Hair High. He did quite a few mtv shorts back in the day and is just an incredibly inventive animator.

    And how could I not post probably my favourite Ren & Stimpy. The immortal Space Madness.

    Regarding an earlier comment, in my experience almost all animators work with a mirror by their desk. It's the easiest way to spot who the animators are when you walk into a games company...

    Speaking of games...

    Muramasa, because this kind of 2d work is *extremely* hard to do in realtime on current videogame hardware

    I love this one. I believe I got the link for this awhile back from Phil and Kaja Foglio's GIRL GENIUS.

    Birdy Nam Nam video by Willy Sweeney

    Trailer for Christiane Cegavske's film Blood Tea and Red String.
    She also animated the birds from The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things

    I think this is one of my most favorite threads I've seen on here yet.

    Real eyes were superimposed on the faces, which do not move otherwise.

    (I wish I could find a clip of Batman TAS "The Demon's Quest". It's just beautiful. Bits of it look rotascoped.)

    One of the most beautiful and thought provoking animated series you'll ever watch.
    • CommentTimeApr 8th 2010

    Because I'm actually a little surprised no one has brought up William Kentridge yet. These animations are done directly into charcoal drawings.

    Well to start I just want to thank all of you for always delivering great things. And I hope I'm not repeating myself to much feel s like I already have mentioned most of what I like in one thread or another but here it goes:

    Lets start with some pure childhood nostalgia that still manages to entertain my boring grown up self "Resan till Melonia" a version of The tempest by one of my all time favourite animators Per Åhlin.
    Resan till Melonia

    This is a much later find Raoul Servais that often manages to make me think a bit after seeing on of his films.
    Operation X-70

    And the last animator I would like to mention is Jurij Norstein he just makes stunning stuff.
    Hedgehog in the fog

    This short speaks to the nerd in me:
    The Raftman's Razor

    This is an odd one because I'm not sure I really like the animation that much but somehow it compliments the story so perfectly so the hole becomes greater then its parts.
    The Man with the Beautiful Eyes

    This film is so great because it manages to take something as dated as marionettes and manages to use them in a innovative way and tells a better story because of it.

    This is just a wonderfully crazy must see film.

    Did that immortal film ever come out by the way?
    I remember the trailer, but not
    a film?

    Anyone know?

    @Rachael - the characters in that clip remind me of the figures in Esao Andrews's paintings.

    This is actually in theaters right now. Just saw it, beautiful film. The Secret of Kells

    ... and an old favorite of mine Cat Soup
