Saturday Morning Cartoons: “The Diary of Tortov Roddle: A Red Fruit” and “Strange Invaders”

The Diary of Tortov Roddle: A Red Fruit
Katou Kunio
Tamu Townsend, of Frames Per Second, turned me on to Katou Kunio. Kunio has created a marvelous series of dreamscapes featuring a traveler and his horse-legged pig. There are over a half dozen of these little films. Each is quiet and elegant, with a subtle humor and beautifully drawn.

Strange Invaders

A wee outer-space bundle As frantic as the above is serene. From the creator of the classic “The Cat Came Back

Thanks. If I remember correctly, you were not a fan of some of the darker ones. (?) Thanks for sticking with it.

I'll still be mixing dark animations in but perhaps with the added bit of copy, people can decide if something might be worth their time before hand.

Thanks, Cybernetic! I had been avoiding movies split into two parts but after viewing that, I'm sorry I did. Fantastic. I just posted in on my own blog and bet it will make an appearance here soon.

Rene — have you been bitten by the Twitter bug?
