Don Bluth's Banjo the Woodpile Cat (Full Cartoon)
With this widescreen romantic musical adventure, animator Don Bluth offers a film that rivals Disney. Rewriting history somewhat, evil magician Rasputin puts a curse on the Tsar's family and causes the Revolution. The child princess Anastasia survives, but grows up as an orphan, unable to remember her past. Very tiny girl meets equally tiny boy, and they all live happily ever after in this sweet kids' animation. Musical animated adventure following recently deceased German Shepherd Charlie B. Barkin Reynolds and sidekick Itchiford as they set out to take revenge for Charlie's murder.
Disney, meanwhile, released The Lion King, which remains the third highest grossing animated film of all time. A Troll In Central Park centers on a vegetation-loving troll and the campy evil queen who turns Central Park into a smoldering pile of rubble in order to destroy him. Thumbelina fares better by comparison, but basically plays out like a knock-off Disney princess story with a dark sense of humor. In one scene, a sexy toad voiced by Charo performs a Conga number about show business. In another, a Gilbert Gottfried-voiced beetle dresses Thumbelina as a butterfly and makes her perform at his nightclub. At his worst, Bluth produced beautifully animated nonsense. In All Dogs Go To Heaven , the Runyon-esque tale of gambling dogs is interrupted by a Cajun alligator who inexplicably sings a duet with the protagonist.
American animator Don Bluth has had a long and varied career, but, over the last decade, awareness of his style, ambitions, and work have mostly receded from the pop culture radar. Which is unfortunate; because in addition to his unique style, Bluth was an animator unafraid to use the medium to explore concepts of class struggles, racism, the perils of adolescence and even mortality. His passion for the Mouse House eventually landed him a post-collegiate job there, where he would go on to work on such legendary projects as Sleeping Beauty, The Fox and The Hound and The Black Cauldron. His time at Disney was ultimately a disappointment; as Bluth felt the company, seemingly only interested in saving money, was straying too far from the animation techniques that had inspired him as a child. Determined to make films more akin to the Golden Age of Animation, Bluth and a handful of other animators departed to create their own studio. While Bluth continued to direct, his films were less well-received such as the widely-panned A Troll In Central Park and often times unfavorably compared to the big-budgeted, award winning films released by his former employer like his release: Thumbelina. His final directorial effort to date came in , when his sci-fi adventure Titan A.
