Roobarb and Custard



What I was really looking for was the 1951 film Rhubarb, about a cat who inherits a baseball team. Instead, I found this.



You'll notice these are narrated by Richard Briers, who played Tom Good on Good Neighbors (The Good Life in the UK). He was also the voice of Fiver in Watership Down.

I'd post more, but you can just visit the You Tube channel where I found them, as he has a lot of those, as well as some "Mr. Benn" cartoons.

I like that lo-tech animating with markers look of this.

There were produced by animation legend Bob Godfrey in the 1970's. I use to watch these as a kid from a videotape!

The style is very familiar. I'm off to google Bob Godfrey!

His family use to stuck a couple of his films online but then took them down and acted like assholes over it. I've got a good assortment of them in my collection!
