Saturday Morning Cartoons: “The Sandman” and “Sébastien”

A nightmare with a unicorn chaser*, both from viewer suggestions. (Thanks Carly Mazur and Tiffany Prothero.)

The Sandman: A truly scary bedtime story. Great expressionist backgrounds and lighting. I’d say it’s Tim Burton-esque but it was made before Nightmare Before Christmas. (9 minutes)

Sébastien: Flights of fancy are contagious. From the amazing french animation school Gobelins. (1.50 minutes)
