    Smile Cartoons around the world!

    I've seen plenty of American animation but I was wondering, what sorts of cartoons do you guys in other counties have? I saw a clip from an old French cartoon called Barbapapa and it got me wondering about this.

    hmmmm....there are some things like "David der Klabauter" if you want to see some very classic and old cartoons for kids. And "Walhalla" out of scnadinavia. One of my favorite cartoons.

    THEY USED TO SHOW THAT ON PINWHEEL IN THE 80'S!!! Oh man, I wondered what that show was!

    I wanna toss in a couple of my favorite old foreign cartoons. This one is called Ivan's Magic Pony and was the first animated feature to come from Russia. It's super roto-scopey but still beautiful.



    The Big Snit came out of Canada, another fave For some reason, this is how I imagine Ilaekae's home life to be.




    I saw Anna and Bella on a collection called "The World's Greatest Animation". It came out of ...oh gosh, I think Hungary but don't quote me on that.



    I hope people add more to this thread, I looooooove this stuff

    there was a stop motion cartoon from the 1980's in Ireland called Flatterys Garden about a dog that could make wishes come true... it was very trippy....

    though my personal favourite was Count Duckula Uk animation from Cosgrove Hall, also Danger Mouse...
    the memories....

    In Poland there was few cartoons.
    These are quite old.

    "Reksio"


    "Bolek i Lolek"


    "Dziwne przygody Koziołka Matołka"


    "Miś Uszatek"


    I know few more but I couldn't find them on youtube.

    Prof Baltazar! One of my better memories We also had Barbapapa.

    La Linea has always been one of my true favourites though. They'd show those, since they're so short, between programs every now and then. Always a treat. Simple and funny. I think I talked and sang like La Linea for a couple of years

    What I remember more of is the animated doll series though. Most were not Norwegian. That you probably all saw at one point, at least one of them... Like Colargol:



    I remember when they build the spacerocket the most.

    And also, the Fraggles!



    And... of course Pat & Mat, or the Two Good Neighbours as we called them.



    When it comes to the truly Norwegians though, there weren't that many, really. We used to watch a lot of Eastern European stuff for kids, for some reason. We *do* have Pernille and Mr Nelson:



    Then you have Pompel and Pilt, which is also Norwegian, and was a weird depressive thing with weird things going on, making a lot of kids have nightmares, and has gotten the reputation of screwing up a whole generation and a half....



    Last, but absolutely not least we had a guy called Ivo Caprino that made some wonderful stuff out of all our eventyr, our folklore fairytales. Here's from one of the Ashlad ones with English dubbing:



    And he also made several other things, movies, the thing he's most known for next to the Karius and Baktus, and all the folklore stuff is the Flåklypa Grand Prix, a full evening movie. Which is hillarious, and most Norwegian has a love relationship for it. Appearantly it's called Pinchcliffe Grand Prix in English, here's the start of it in English, even though nothing can beat it in Norwegian.



    Ok, hope I didn't bore you to death with all these movies. And that they're ok even though they're not drawn animations

    I can't remember what it's called, but there was this one that I saw all the time when I was in Finland, and later found out it's also very popular in japan.... Oh! Moomin! That's what it was called.

    I would find a clip if I could read finnish...

    Oooh, I forgot how prolific other countries have been with stop mo shorts and series! Here's a couple others I remember, one is Chapi Chapo from France:



    I'll beat you Brits to it and mention Magic Roundabout!



    ...and Hattytown.

    I grew up with Pumuckl! XD Not really cartoon, but a cartoon figure in a movie.

    From the obscure to most 20ish years ago in france:

    Most of what we had was Japanese or Franco-Japanese productions... UNCESORED. Good times! Oh and also a few really nice stop motion ones from eastern europe (it still counts, right?).

    - Les Shadocks


    - Les Barbapapas (you know that one )
    - Albator which is known to anglophones as Captain Harlock

    - Ulysses 31 (my favorite. Was smart, well animated, scary, etc.)


    - Les Mystérieuses Citées d'or
    - Ken le Survivant (or Ken of the North Star, which I hear was all the rage in gay bars.)
    - Les Chevaliers du Zodiac (or Saint Saya)

    - Mio Mao


    - Couac Couac

    - Téléchat (Sorry in french only.. but crazy!)


    - Boumbo
    - GI Joe, Mask, Les Bisounours, Baby Muppets, Arthur & Tom, Candy, Goldorak, Les Mondes Engloutis... etc.

    AAAH I forgot my childhood crush.. Capitaine Flam!


    And then Cobra... I can't beleive this was airing middle of the afternoon uncensored!


    Steph: Oh DUH! Chapi Chapo! That was so great! I still listen to the theme song... and Polux... gosh.

    Edit : Linked some of them and added a few! wow I was watching waaaaay too much tv :/

    This is the real Moomin cartoon. Although the real MOOMIN are the ones from the books and comics. Not that half-manga crap...

    @Slash: Hufsa?




    Also, Barbapapa was so stupid!

    This is fun stuff . I like seeing stop motion animation. Prof. Baltazar seems vaguely familiar, especially in the intro. It

    Anyone seen Persepolis? It's based on a graphic novel by a woman who grew up in Iran (she lives in France now).

    I edited my previous post with you tube embeds.

    Blaz! Surogat's a GREAT animation! I love the old style animation with symphonic orchestra support. And it has so much humor Great on all accounts.
    As for Father and Daughter, I think it was Ed Hooks who showed it to us when he came here at work. Great timming, great style, really touching. Didn't it win a few prestigious awards?


    mazouko: I loved the novels! And even cried watching it at the theater even though I knew the story...

    Steph: That's an awesome scene! The accent (nearly) had me rolling on the floor.

    Hyver: *facepalm* how could I forget La Linea.... Bayoubadoum.

    This thread is a goldmine!
