Little Johnny Jet, Tex Avery, 1953

This seems to be a popular destination cartoon. Unfortunately, the version I had originally posted was taken down. This version shall serve as a watchable placeholder until I can do better.

This is an episode of a Flash series Kricfalusi made back in the 1990s, when dinosaurs roamed the internet.






Now he would like your assistance making a much more awesome George Q. Liquor cartoon, Cans Without Labels.

KICKSTARTER THINGY

You can give him money and get stuff, and then he will take all the money and make a cartoon out of it!

Rubik's Cube, Aleksandr Tatarskiy, Igor Kovalev, Vladen Barbe, and A. Fedulov, 1985

Brought to us via the ever-gracious Niffiwan:
This is a collection of three films from 1985 by people who would later form "Pilot Animation Studio". 1) The Box of Pencil Crayons 2) Did You See the Hare? 3) Rubik's Cube: Clownery. My favourite is "The Box of Pencil Crayons", for the enchanting, dynamic animation. It was a real pain to translate, too... (actually, I recommend reading the song lyrics first and not reading the subtitles while you watch it)
