Steampunk Month

Saturday Morning Cartoons: The Steampunk Edition: “Jasper Morello,” “The Aeronaut,” and “The Gentleman’s Duel”

In honor of Steampunk Month, here’s one repeat and two new ones.

The Mysterious Geographic Explorations of Jasper Morello: Apologies for the repeat—we put Jasper in ages ago but it’s well worth a re-watch. This is the coolest steampunk animated short that I know of. (Not that I’m an expert.) A lighter-than-air mystery, beautifully designed—every frame is a pleasure. (27 minutes)

The Aeronaut: Throwing caution to the wind…with some insurance. A very sweet steampunk Icarus. (2.07 minutes)

A Gentleman’s Duel: Gentleman callers gone awry. I’ll admit I don’t love the story, but the machines are very cool.

As always, more great animation in the Saturday Morning Cartoon Index.
