ANIMATED MOMENTS

This one was totally foreign to me. Did my usual bailout after the first one took most of the alphabet and the second was on the same subject.

That puzzle certainly wins the obscurity award!

I know my cartoons, and I guess we have different tastes...or maybe all my favorite moments were on the other 5 WP questions.

When the quiz is done, I'll mention a couple and y'all can tell me if they were mentioned.

Got lucky - they included 2 of my alltime favorites - it took some time but it was great fun.

I watch a lot of animated shorts and movies. I hate long puzzles. I rarely bail, but I couldn't take the length of each answer today.

Definitely different. I was close to my average but managed my best finish in WP. Of the five, the first was pretty obscure, Rarg I think, and took me 14 moves. After that it was at least cartoons I recognized.

The other day when one of the answers included the phrase "underwater city of Bikini Bottom" I figured my years as a parent and dedicated cartoon viewer would pay off. Not so much.

Loved it. I've even used the Bugs/Elmer opera as an avatar.

Could someone explain what "rarg" is? I was flailing in the dark on that one.

Rarg is a perfect little world where the sky is always blissfully blue, the birds
are always singing and everyone is inconceivably happy. That is, until a great
discovery is made. Rarg and its population are merely figments of a dream
being dreamt by a man called Edwin Barnes. If something isn't done soon,
Edwin will wake and the world of Rarg will surely disappear for ever!

"Rarg" is a beautiful, whimsical tale, animated in traditional 2D cel form, which took
Tony Collingwood and his small team at the National Film and Television School
in Beaconsfield more than four and a half years to create. It's difficult to write
too much about the film without spoiling things. Suffice it to say, the Rargians
concoct a daring plan to save themselves. The execution of this Great Plan,
the Rargians in big pink jumpsuits with matching earmuffs and pillows on their
feet, the Intelli-babies, Nigel Hawthorne's golden narration, it all works
wonderfully. Oh, and then there's a delightful twist in the tale that will leave
a big pink smile on your face...

"RARG" is a neat film. I'm glad it was mentioned.

I'm gonna toss out another film, now available on DVD, for sheer visual splendor. "Paprika," by Satoshi Kon, was a stunning film, though the plot can be hard to follow at times.

But the opening along might give you a sense of the film...
