Best Animated Feature – 1968

My Nominations: Asterix and Cleopatra. The Little Norse Prince. The SuperVIPs. Yellow Submarine.

Asterix and Cleopatra is a surprisingly deep film with a lot of character and pot detail as well as some well drawn action sequences and musical numbers. The Super VIPs is a great little movie, well ahead of its time, charting the adventures of two superheroes – one a muscle bound freak, the other a stunted little man. It has a lot of humour which adults and kids alike will appreciate, making it look like a precursor to modern animated movies. Yellow Submarine is a bit of an illogical mess, but thanks to great artwork and (of course) music, it has a very unique style. The Little Norse Prince is one of the first Toei animated films I ever saw, pitting both Miyazaki and Takahata together and showcasing their flair for fast paced action, involving stories and characters, and fine animation which was beginning to move away from the Disney style to create a true, high quality competitor.

My Winner: The Little Norse Prince

    Great post 🙂 The Little Norse Prince sounds interesting 🙂 I gotta look for it 🙂 I bet when the year 1972 comes up for you to do the Best Animated Film alternate list, you are going to choose Fritz the Cat as the winner 🙂 Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂
