Here is Greenwood, episode 4: “The Phantom of Greenwood”
Hayao Miyazaki is outspoken about his admiration and dislike of the vintage American animation company, Fleischer Studios. In 1979, Miyazaki written a review of Fleischer’s Mister Bug Goes to Town in great detail, “I like Fleischer works. And when I say ‘Fleischer,’ I do not mean Dave Fleischer the individual, but the whole animation staff, which probably included members both young and old and represented an entire trend in animation that is symbolized by the word ‘Fleischer.’” Though he did not enjoy the outcome of Mister Bug Goes to Town, Miyazaki greatly enjoyed the gags from Popeye and particularly finds Betty Boop amusing. He paid tribute to Fleischer Studios and Disney’s 1928 Plane Crazy in this sequence from Porco Rosso, where Porco watches a short animated film in a local film theater. [ x ]
Some Neon Genesis Evangelion rough illustrations by animator Yutaka Nakamura. Check out his MAD videos—-he’s known among animators for his really fluid fight scenes. He was actually a key animator on the original NGE TV series, and yes, that’s Doraemon with Unit 01 in the second picture.
