The Lost Dream (1947)

This cartoon was one of my favourites when I was little. I would love to make something like this some day, with beautiful water-coloured backgrounds and ace music. The nightmare toons and grown-up jokes are also killer.

It’s a great shame to me that cartoons are moving further and further away from this level of artistic kickassness–I mean, I realise it’s cheaper not to do everything by hand, but I hope people will still bother, because it’s so magical. I haven’t really seen anything this swell since John Kricfalusi’s first few seasons of Ren and Stimpy.
