Best Animated Film – 1975

My Nominations: Coonskin. Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid

Slim picking this year with Japan’s Toei animation crafting a tragic film quite unlike the more famous Disney version. The winner though is the rightly controversial Coonskin by Ralph Baski – a film which never had a shot at widespread critical analysis after it was pulled from release due to multiple protests. It’s a satire not only against White America, but the glorification of violence, criminal lifestyle, gang warfare, and masculinity in the 20th Century.

My Winner: Coonskin

    I would pick Coonskin as well and everything you said about it as a satire is spot on. Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂

      Not a lot else to choose from, but a deserving winner anyway
