The 11th Annual Animation Challenge!

The 11th Annual Animation Challenge Discussion Thread
2020
List thread is here.

The Details

Challenge starts July 31st at 12:01 am local time.

Challenge ends September 1st at dawn.

Rules

Movies/TV shows should be labeled Animation from either imdb.com or allmovie.com. Other labels don't matter as long as there is at least a Animation label from one of those sites. Action/Animation would be fine.

This is the challenge where any and all types of animation is welcome, computer, hand drawn, puppetry, stop motion, etc. The entire movie/show does not need to be completely animated. Something like Roger Rabbit or a Ray Harryhausen film would generally be allowed.

If anyone has a problem with something someone watches or just wants an opinion on if it's animation or not, ask here.

Animation documentaries are allowed but not DVD featurettes/interviews that are just fluff promo pieces.

As with the other challenges, the lists must be numbered or it won't count.

Watching the movie/show with the commentary can counted as unique items.

Watching multiple versions(theatrical and director's cut) of the same movie/show will also count.

Lists

Since the general consensus seems to be for the easy counting method we will go with that. However, it is not required, so if you wish to count another way, feel free, as I will not be doing stats.

How to win

Names will be randomly selected from http://www.random.org/lists/ The first 3 people listed, one prize per person, will win. Unfortunately, prizes can only go to people who live in the States.

Sponsors: HamiltonBooks and GoldenWheels! Thank you for your sponsorship!

Also, Jellyfish Eyes, King of Jazz and the Eclipse set, Dusan Makavejev: Free Radical could count as well. Along with Journey to the Beginning of Time and Invention for Destruction.

Newer additions: The Fabulous Baron Munchausen, The Plague Dogs, The Triplets of Belleville, Watership Down
Along with these shorts: Asparagus, Begone Dull Care, Bluebeard, Coda, Edmond Was a Donkey, Hunger, Logorama, Madame Tutli-Putli, Monkey Love Experiments, Solar Walk, Yearbook, Yours Faithfully, Edna Welthorpe (Mrs).

Re: The 11th Annual Animation Challenge!

Please take a look at the checklist and if you have a suggestion or a change, I'd love to hear it! We have 2 pending from last year: Adding 2020, Kath Soucie to the voice actor list and adding musicals and family to genres list.

Re: The 11th Annual Animation Challenge!

I enjoy this challenge, and a lot of my DVDs are cartoons. Planning to watch some for the current challenge too.

I don't have many real suggestions as I don't really know any of the voice actors and I think the rest of the checklist creates a diversity that I like. I would suggest Marvel as one of the studios and I think that having family added to the genre list is a good idea.

Re: The 11th Annual Animation Challenge!

I think the Studios list could use some spicing up. Add or substitute these studios:

Sunrise
Bones
Trigger
Madhouse
Gainax
Laika
Aardman

I can supply revelant links if necessary.

Oh, and like the SF/F Challenge I think we should remove the NC-17/X rating. There aren't that many choices so the same movies get watched every year, unless you're talking hentai, but no hentai are rated NC-17/X as far as I know. We could change the rating to Adult/18+ instead?

Please! It'll save me some time having the links to the studios. (Though, Aardman...that's Wallace and Gromit/Shaun the Sheep, right?) Thanks!

Would anyone want me to add Lego movies anywhere? There are a ton of them, kind of like the Marvel animated films. I could add them to the list. Any objections to adding Marvel either? Any other suggestions for the checklist?

I'll give us another day or two before reworking the checklist. Same time frame for the list thread. Once I finalize the checklist, I'll get that up too.

Re: The 11th Annual Animation Challenge!

Last year I watched the first season of The Slayers. This year, season two, Slayers Next, and since I've started the Slayers Excellent OVA, I'll either knock out the next two episodes during this challenge or finish them off for the SF/F Challenge. Besides Slayers, I've got Primal lined up and I'm debating Samurai Jack, which sits at 62 episodes (five seasons). Netflix has got several movies I haven't watched yet, not to mention the final Tales of Arcadia series, Wizards, shows up late August. I've got over 1400 animated theatrical shorts to choose from too. Not to mention revisiting favorites like Infinity Train (curse that season 3 is going to be a HBO Max exclusive), Hilda and the like as well.

Re: The 11th Annual Animation Challenge!

Thought of another possible addition to the checklist:

Simple:
Watch an holiday animation (any holiday)

or could make it more expansive:

Watch an holiday animation
- Halloween
- Thanksgiving
- Christmas

Could change holidays every year. Something along those lines

I did add most of the studios. I added Adult/18+ to the same line. Note that you don't have to watch all of them to complete that part of the checklist, just 4.

It's a great perk that so many animated films crossover with sci-fi/fantasy. Makes it easy to continue a series from one month to the other!

Re: The 11th Annual Animation Challenge!

Just saw the trailer for the newest dtv Scooby-Doo movie, Happy Halloween, Scooby-Doo. It looks reasonably promising. Working alongside the Scooby gang will be Elvira and Bill Nye and the villain? The Scarecrow. Hoping for the heights of Zombie Island (I haven't seen it, but the sequel to Zombie Island is supposed to be packing) or the Witch's Curse would be fruitless, but we'll see come October when the DVD only (sigh) is released. Here's the trailer:


Pity it's not being released in time for the Animation Challenge.

Re: The 11th Annual Animation Challenge!

Looking forward to tonight. I think Disney+ will see a lot of use, between the Disney movies and Marvel cartoons and Disney cartoons. Plan to use HBO Max and DC Universe as well. I know YouTube has a lot of animation as well. I once found Mighty Orbots on YouTube.

You're planning a very late night then since the Challenge doesn't start until after midnight.

I never noticed that this challenge starts at 12:01 am on 7/31. I'm glad you made your statement so that I know now that I can start in the morning!

Re: The 11th Annual Animation Challenge!

And let the challenge begin! It's almost 1 am here, so for me it started a bit ago. Not going to start until later in the day as I just finished 2 longer ones for the sci-fi/fantasy challenge. I haven't quite decided what I'm going to start with, but I definitely have several newer Disney films to watch that I want to get off the "to watch" list. While I've seen them in the theaters, I haven't watched my copies yet, at least. Onward and Frozen II to start with!

Hope everyone has a great challenge! Let's get watching!

I really enjoyed The Animated Series. I only learned about it about 5-8 years ago and managed to pick it up fairly cheaply somewhere. Hmm, wasn't thinking of re-watching it, but now, I might have to!

I plan on giving Disney+ some love this month too. I have several films on my watch list there that I want to check off.

I'm a night owl too, but the older I get, the more sleep I need and unfortunately, my job has an early start. But...I also get summers off, so it kind of balances out. Won't lie, it's a rough week or two at the end of August when I have to readjust to work hours. I find nighttime a lot easier time to get movies/shows watched. During normal awake hours, there's always some distraction, but late at night is quiet and no one else is around to demand attention.

Re: The 11th Annual Animation Challenge!

Iíve been enjoying the Challenge today. I watched some anime earlier today with a couple episodes of Beast King Golion ​​​​​​. Itís interesting to see how shows change between Japanese language and English dubs. Plus Golion seemed like it was geared more toward adults, with actual deaths happening, and the language is more adult as well. This morning, I also indulged in a kidís cartoon I always enjoyed, Paw Patrol. It had changed a lot since I watched it last, as it was more of a superhero show, since the pups had super powers and were called the Mighty Pups.

Re: The 11th Annual Animation Challenge!

HBO Max posted a video of an arbitrary list of the top 10 Bugs Bunny shorts a few days ago. No real complaints, though I'm sure people can think of plenty of other shorts that deserve to be on the list instead. The Hunting Trilogy and What's Opera Doc? (1957) always deserve to be on any top 10 list.

Re: The 11th Annual Animation Challenge!

For anyone with a Criterion Channel subscription, here's a filtered list of animation on the channel right now. For anyone planning to participate in next month's Criterion Challenge and looking for content that will have dual eligibility during the overlap on the last night of this challenge and first day of that, I've also got a Letterboxd list of everything that has been added to the channel's monthly lineups. Here it is, filtered for animation. Anything on this list, including content that is no longer available on the channel, will be eligible anyway. (Note: This list does not include the permanent library, which may include additional animated content.)

Are there any films missing from the list in the opening post? (I'll look at the link in a second, but thought you might know offhand, Travis). If you think of it at the end of the challenge, you might want to re-post this when people would want double credit the last day...

Going to start the challenge with getting some watches out of the way, first time of my personal copy, but not necessarily of the movie. I upgraded my copy of The Sword in the Stone to BR, for instance. One nice thing about Disney releases is that they add shorts to most of them so you get a few watches, not just one out of each disc!

Re: The 11th Annual Animation Challenge!

Something to consider for the checklist next year, live action animation/anime adaptions.

Re: The 11th Annual Animation Challenge!

I watched the first couple episodes of Jonny Quest on Blu-Ray, and it looks wonderful. I've been super impressed with the Blu-Ray releases of several animated series: The Jetsons, Batman: TAS, Avatar: The Last Airbender. I need to buy the new Scooby-Doo set and am eagerly anticipating the recently announced release of The Flintstones. I hope even more are forthcoming!
