At last uncut and unexpurgated...,
This review is from: Animaland [DVD] (DVD)
Animaland. The generic title for a series of cartoons made for Rank in Great Britain by David Hand (supervising director of "Snow White" and "Bambi"). Apparently it was thought that all but four of these titles were lost until another five turned up in an odd lot sale; They make interesting viewing because of the immense difference between this homegrown British product and the stuff coming from MGM, Warners and of course Disney at this time. I first came upon some of these cartoons on 8mm from Walton Films who issued quite a few in 200 ft (6 minute sound)cutdowns, but it is a pleasure to see them complete and in sparkling quality.
At the price I can recommend them wholehearedly as cartoons that you can show to young children with no fears about inappropriate content, no "hidden" gags for the adults, just good clean fun for all. (I've just thought of a gag at the climax of "The House Cat" that some may think a little off but trust me the toddlers won't understand that one)
Everyone should see these...they are of great interest and consummate charm. And they are BRITISH.
