Cartoons 101 – 7 Animated Films That Should Be In The Criterion Collection!

The Criterion Collection 50% off sale is upon us once again! Every time it rolls around it just feels like there’s something missing.

Has the sale dropkicked your wallet like it has mine? Every time that sale rolls around I just can’t resist. Just this month I’ve bought The Before Trilogy, the Guillermo Del Toro set, Crumb, Stalker, Boyhood and a few more. But every time the sale comes to town I’m disappointed that I already have EVERY animated film in the collection! Which isn’t hard, since on blu ray there are only THREE animated films. Four if you count laserdisc. So thanks to my Patrons, who voted for this topic, I made a list of seven films that NEED to be in the Criterion Collection.

Do you agree with my list or have some of your own suggestions to add? Let me know in the comments!

You can find Cartoons 101 right here on Laser Time most weeks or on the Youtube channel. And be sure to check out the Patreon! Every little bit helps, even a buck. Give it a look and if you can find it in your heart to donate I can’t tell you how much I would appreciate that. I’m moving to San Francisco NEXT WEEK and the Patreon is incredibly valuable to me right now. I won’t have a job at first! If the donation reward tiers don’t tickle your fancy, let me know what would and I might even consider adding it. The same goes for Cartoons 101 topics, if there’s anything animation or cartoon related you’d like to see covered on the show leave a comment here or on the channel. And don’t forget to subscribe!

  1. Still remember seeing perfect blue on syfy the edited cut without knowing and talking to a friend and saying what rape? I was very confused

  2. This is a great list. I know that the current version of The Iron Giant is a pretty great release, with lots of Criterion-esque features, but boy would it be nice to have it with that spine alongside my other Criterion stuff.
