Great presentation Jan. 21 2007
By Stephen - Published on
Format: DVD
Very pleased with this set. In an age where you can quite easily pay $20 for a new, single-disc release of most movies, which come with no insert other than a one-sheet "Buy more DVDs from this company"'s refreshing to pay less than $20 for two well-made discs and a very nice, informative booklet. As a fan of Hertzfeldt, Plympton and Judge, I bought this on the strength of them, but am finding a lot more that I like on here as well. Can't wait to catch the road show when it comes to the my area.

Word of warning, most people who come to this page will already know but, some of these cartoons are rather strange. Just be forewarned, if you try to put this on in mixed company, or for people who aren't really into animation other than Family Guy and The Simpsons, I doubt they will run screaming - but they're probably going to give you some strange looks. That's one of the reasons I love them - but, it might not be a lot of people's cup of tea.

And like JONG said, for 67 cents a short, you really can't beat giving it a shot.

Not too shabby for under $20 Jan. 8 2007
By Jonathan Galimore - Published on
Format: DVD
Somehow or another my local Target store was selling copies of this dvd about 10 days before it is supposed to be released. So....lucky me. For animation fans of whatever variety, this is a great little collection. "Mike Judge and Don Hertzfeldt have scoured the globe to bring you thirty amazing animated films", and how! This collection includes a smorgasboard of animation, including traditional animation, rotoscoping, clay animation, stop-motion, 3d animation, experimental, and probably more than a few hybrids. If you are a fan of "Beavis and Butt-head" (or just a fan of Mike Judge in general), this collection contains several early animations and experimentations, somewhat revealing the evolution of the style behind "B & B". Although, it may be said that you can probably view the majority (if not all) of these animations on-line, there is something invaluable about having them all in your hand contained within an attractively designed box set, which also contains an informative booklet profiling the artists behind the contained animations. All for under $20 (which comes out to about 67 cents per animation). Not too shabby.

By OLD GUY. - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
My kids and I used to love to watch animation in the nineties. The National Film Board of Canada, the Mind's Eye series, Disney, early Pixar, Miramar--all vhs, of course. We've replaced some of it, but not all so it's nice to keep moving with collections like the Animation Show. We're all older now and I never worry about appropriateness like I used to. Because animation is a wide open field and there are possible weirdnesses you may feel the need to preview the selections. I have several favorites: Cathedral, Bathtime in Clerkenwell, Rockfish, Plymton's Parking, and Guard Dog, Aria, Das Rad. Special mention for La Course A L'Abime 1992--that's some superb thinking there. Adam Elliot's pieces Uncle, Cousin, and Brother have hilarious looks at real life situations--thankfully, on the screen. Pan With Us certainly looks like a lot of work--all of these border on deep art--amazing visuals and accompanying musics. Fascinating, touching, and possibly confrontational in character. All without going to the theater or art gallery. Moving Illustrations of Machines is the kind of work I'd like to see more of, but this Show is about a variety of animations and even if there's one or two that are hard to sit through there's always a payoff.

I FINALLY OWN THIS!! Feb. 12 2007
By Nina Roberts - Published on
Format: DVD
I had been wanting to own The Animation Show (vol. 1) ever since my local video store had their copy stolen. I had rented it probably 4 or 5 times. I was ecstatic when I finally found a copy and it came with both volumes! Volume one is hilarious! The cotton-balls (or whatever they are) are so bizarre and they show up a couple of times during the course of the show to teach us the definition of animation and such. Volume two doesn't have these characters, which I thought was a little sad, but the other animations were so good it didn't matter. Both volumes really have a good mix of humor, drama, and art.
