Hayao Miyazaki is outspoken about his admiration and dislike of the vintage American animation company, Fleischer Studios. In 1979, Miyazaki written a review of Fleischer’s Mister Bug Goes to Town in great detail, “I like Fleischer works. And when I say ‘Fleischer,’ I do not mean Dave Fleischer the individual, but the whole animation staff, which probably included members both young and old and represented an entire trend in animation that is symbolized by the word ‘Fleischer.’” Though he did not enjoy the outcome of Mister Bug Goes to Town, Miyazaki greatly enjoyed the gags from Popeye and particularly finds Betty Boop amusing. He paid tribute to Fleischer Studios and Disney’s 1928 Plane Crazy in this sequence from Porco Rosso, where Porco watches a short animated film in a local film theater. [ x ]
Man, this new brony documentary sure looks fascinating!
I wouldn’t suggest watching in full view, the video apparently has resolution issues.
(The only thing in the video that belongs to me is my voice in the beginning, apart from that the BG music is by Celldweller, the pictures and videos are taken randomly from Youtube and Google)
Jesus Fucking Christ. o.o
One of the few times I agreed with her.
