Let's discuss about classic and new cartoons: TV series and movies.
Everyone knows US- and Japanese- (Anime) cartoons, but what is with the "rest"?
Let's have a look:

Example: Barbapapa, Tintin, Asterix, Lucky Luke, Clever & Smart, ...

Well i do remember that, i used to watch them when i was a kid and i liked all of the series, with the exception that Clever & Smart is the only one i have never heard of. And since i was born and brought up in finland i used to watch alot of the series called Moomin,(iactually got scared when the groke appeared,that i blame for being only 5 years old) Too bad i dont know was it ever aired outside finland and sweden. Yeah it does seem really childish now days but if anyones interested theres some info about the show in : http://www.moomin.fi/englanti/index_e.htm

The original (Spanish) title of "Clever & Smart" is "Mortadelo y Filemón". The cartoon series and the movie are basing on the comic series "Mortadelo y Filemón" by Francisco Ibañez.

I remember watching a few Tintin’s when I was younger, but they always ended coming out the same, much like Scooby Doo...

Tin Tin, what a marvelous show. Even if the guy was a little slow on the uptake, the show gets extra points for all the gat-totting.

I have a pile of Tin Tins (all of them I think, I may be missing one or two) and nearly as many Asterixeses.  smile

Tin Tin was quite amusing, showing us that even Salty Sea Captains need Whiskey all the time.

I used to read the Asterix comics when I was a child, I don't think I ever watched the animated version though.

The Animations are quite good, one of them even had the actors with French accents.

Sorry Tweek, just getting my point across.

Some Yank cartoons are okay, like Spawn and Duckman as well as our certain favourite.

............................. ............

A movie I've seen yesterday:

"Allegro non troppo"

"Allegro non troppo" from 1977, directed by Bruno Bozzetto is often called the Italian "Fantasia". Like Disney's popular movie, it combines cartoon-animation and classic music. Different to Disney's movie, "Allegro" is less of a friendly Mickey Mouse-style, but more a mix of elements from "Yellow Submarine", "Mordillo", 1960s sexual revolution and in general a "typical" late 60s/early 70s cartoon style.
Between the cartoon-elements are black-white moments filled with the interaction between the film-maker (he thinks he just had the most amazing idea of film-making), the composer (very choleric) and the cartoon-animator (the creator of "Signor Rossi").

Humourful, impressiv and a classic movie it gets a clear "absolut look-worth-i-ness".

I know, "look-worth-i-ness" is not a real word, but who cares?  wink

Well, no. But you have to admit some of your seventies stuff was quite bad. I'm sure we did sucky animation.

I have this sudden urge to watch Dangermouse.

I don't have to admit anything.

From what I can tell, our 70's stuff is roughly equivalent to your 2000's stuff.

Also, Mighty Mouse said you guys look like dorks.

I grew up in Prague, so from a young age I have watched Czeck cartoons. A particular favourite was one about a cat and a dog living together in the same house, of course they hate eachother. And the animation was not amazing, but that's what added to the charm.

Also, Viva Dangermouse!....(and Superted)

How can you not like the Star Wars Christmas special?  Chewbacca goes home to spend Wookie Christmas with his family.  Hilarious.

Plus, it features the first ever appearance of Boba Fett.

Why not?  Those episodes are but a pale imitation of the real Mighty Mouse.

It's interesting to hear that someone was grown up in Prague. Is anybody remember Lolek & Bolek or the little Mole?

The Little Mole rings a bell.... but it is a bit hazy. I also remember a cartoon with a wolf always after a rabbit and at the end of every episode the wolf yells 'Nien Potchke!'( I'll get you?) or something.

Eh, I liked Wizards.  That's beside the point, though.

The original Mighty Mouse cartoons are classics, and no half-assed attempt to cash in on the popularity of an existing character can compare to them.

MM:TNA wasn't a half-assed cash-in. It was an attempt to bring animation back to it golden age when storyboards, not scripts, were used and cartoonists made cartoons. It started the toon boom that vibrates to this very day. It gave Jim Reardon his first job in professional animation.

If you say so.  It certainly didn't seem any different from any of the other saturday morning cartoons at the time.

Am I supposed to be impressed?  I don't even know who Jim Reardon is.
