Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] _thespookhouse_ I started YouTubing again and discovered a lot of the older, creepy animation shorts and excerpts of stuff I used to watch whilst I was growing up. In the spirit of it being October and me being in somewhat a nostalgic mood today...



Paul Berry's "The Sandman"



"The Mysterious Stranger" excerpt from "The Adventures of Mark Twain"



Tim Burton's "Vincent"


Stop-motion is, by far, my favourite medium of animation. There's just something about it that gives me a sense of the eerie and the weird that none of the other animations forms give me. I loved the disjointed motion that one can't get away from even in the more modern ones. Not to mention, I love the meticulousness, attention to detail, and time that it requires to pull off.


Cordell Barker's "The Cat Came Back"


Interestingly enough, I was having a conversation about these pieces with [livejournal.com profile] tangled_cianan and we were both remarking on how in the time that these were released people seemed a little less worried about what would "warp the mind of the youth." There was a lot more of this class of experimental, expressionist, cerebral yet weird stuff available to younger kids. Whereas the shit we've got warping people now seems to be a lot more literal - just more physically violent than anything else.

And as a bonus, something that was introduced to me a few years ago (thanks [livejournal.com profile] lizzie_borden!):
