Saturday Morning Cartoons: “Engine 371” and “Sleeping Betty”

Engine 371, Sleeping Betty

Engine 371: Progress!? Starts off cute and becomes much more than that. Even though you know where it’s going, it's jazzy pacing and beautiful dream-scape design keeps it fast and fresh. (9.7 minutes)

Sleeping Betty: Every frame is funnier than the last in this period mash-up Sleeping Beauty story. Made from 7,000 perfect India ink drawings. So visually clever, you can watch it over and over, each time walking away with a new set of favorite moments. (9.13 minutes)

I love all these!
Thanks for posting.

Would you remember or know the name of an animation show that used to be on the bbc and on PBS in the U.S?
I was on in the mid or early 70's. IT showed international animation.

I don't remember the name. Thus, I can't search for it on line.
