I dont think I’m out of line when I say the soccer match in Bedknobs and Broomsticks was far superior.

And, yet, the music stands up… in its 10cc sort of way. I will fight any man who says that “Away From It All” isn’t a fine, fine chunk of intricately processed AOR cheese.

Am I remembering correctly, or is there a coke reference floating around in the disco scene? I distinctly remember having the “what’s he sniffing?” conversation with my folks after seeing this.

FLAPJACKS: And you don’t have any idea that they even do this, you know. Maybe there is porn for every species in this world. Like, “Playdog.” And… “Playgull.” And…
MGK: “Rustler.”
FLAPJACKS: “Flank.”
MGK: “Scenthouse.” We’re too good at this. We should stop.

I’ve had too many conversations like this…

I feel this means you ought to review Off The Mark (Crazy Legs here in Canada), a truly awful piece of pseudo-Olympic schlock http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0091669/

I’m pretty sure “Eurasia” is code for Russia. For some reason they seem to have felt the need to avoid naming specific countries. But that just creates awkwardness when they show “Europe” as a silhouette of France, but “Africa” is just Africa. Because it’s all one big country, right?

The animation is pretty damn good for 1980, though. The mink sequence made me laugh.

Try to remember these cartoons were meant to be viewed as separate pieces interspersed with the real-life 1980 Winter and Summer Olympics. When the U.S. boycotted Moscow over the Afghan invasion, that scuttled the summer portions, so they released this as one big hour-long special.

Animalympics is the best goddamn cartoon ever and I will brook no disagreement! …although it is totally what turned me into a furry as a child.

I don’t care how dated & casually stereotyped it is these days, Animalympics totally rocked my world and I am a sad panda over the fact that it has never been released on DVD in the U.S.

While you’re ripping on early-80’s cartoon movies, how about a tribute to Rock & Rule?

Do you guys tape yourselves when you’re having a conversation like this, or reconstruct it later?

This could use a remake.

I so, so, so loved this flick. The music, the voices – everything. I likely watched it two dozen times on HBO one summer. This is a fabulous post.

So, um, please don’t ban me, I would pay a fair bounty to anyone who could find a way to get this to me on DVD :-)

@Prankster: what do you mean, “For 1980?” The Rescuers was 1977 and Secret of NIMH was 1982.
