Read GreenCine's exclusive interview with Bill Plympton, whose giddy, rubber-faced characters and the weird, inspired world flowing from his colored pencils leave an indelible impression.

Good intro by SRhodes March 7, 2003 - 4:22 PM PST

This hour long collection of Bill Plympton's work is a good introduction. Many of the shorts on this DVD can be watched in his section at AtomFilms, but they are much better on DVD.

It might be best to click on menu after you see the brief intro to skip a cut out animation student film, Lucas, the Ear of Corn.

The next cartoon is the real find. Boomtownis a look at the economy, the military, and high tech written by Jules Feiffer is only dated because of references to the Soviet Union.

It also includes the classic shorts 25 Ways to Quit Smoking, How to Kiss, Drawing Lesson #2, and Your Face plus some work for MTV and a Peter Himmelman music video.

Love in the Fast Lane, a minimally animated concept for a sit-com is the only other short besides the corn film not worth watching.

Best Non-Japanese Animation
I'm sick of all these anime lists. How about movies for fans of REAL animation and not of Japanese pop-culture?
