The Little Island, Richard Williams, 1958

The first animated film by the great, fantastic and awesome Richard Williams.

ALSO! You should watch this. I couldn't justify making it a separate post, as it is a documentary. But it is a documentary about Richard Williams, so WATCH IT.

R.I.P. Ray Harryhausen (Mother Goose Stories,1946 - The Story of Little Red Riding Hood, 1950 - The Story of Hansel and Gretel, 1951 - The Story of Rapunzel, 1952 -

I have posted his Story of King Midas (1953) before:

Here are some more.
