Saturday Morning Cartoons: “Fish Heads Fuge” and “Tidy Monster”

Two of the darker type this week

Fish Heads Fugue and Other Tales of Twilight: A strange and claustrophobic film of a little girl running through vignettes in an impossible rotating puppet theater. Although CG, it’s beautifully detailed with all the decay and style of Svankmajer and other stop-motion animators. (6:20 minutes)

Tidy Monster: Madness as portrayed by the madman’s environment. (Let the record show, my room is anything but tidy….I’m a little worried about Pablo, though.)  (5 minutes)

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