    Produced and directed, no doubt, by William Snyder and Gene Deitch.

    This was pure brilliance. Made my day.

    Shades of Worker and Parasite from the Krsuty the Klown vaults.

    Hech hoch!

    …Could someone explain this?

      dg61, I don’t think so. That may be the point.

      Amazingly, i got it. In the period immediately following WWII, eastern European graphics– especially in film and animation– were fraught with undirected angst, pessimism, bad translation, talentless (or at least misdirected) creators, and lousy production values. Sort of The Brothers Quay+Ingmar Bergman’s weirder brother.

      Sure.

    My god, that’s effective. I want to wash my hands, march right over to the store, and get some M&Ms. I’m going to pick out all the red ones first.

      Brilliant! I wish I’d said that.

    It’s M&M day! It’s brilliant the way you can use them so differently here and in Sally Forth.

    I love this one.

    Duuude.

    From late 1956 to 1967, all M&Ms in Prague were red.

    This is more akin to Soviet-made cartoons. Czech cartoons had its own weirdness, although they wern’t as angular as portrayed here (the ones I’ve seen, at least). The Czech cartoons I’m mostly familiar with are Krtek the Mole series, which are actually pretty cute (those were kids stuff, so that’s probably the point).

    Let me defend Gene Deitch a bit by saying that he is being unfairly linked to the “Tom and Jerry” shorts only. Check out his “Nudnik” shorts (a Czech-animated series financed by USA’s Paramount Pictures) or his Terrytoons stuff if you get a chance.

    THIS IS DESIRE’S END

    This is one of my all-time favorite [i]Medium-Large[/i] strips…and since seeing it the first time I’ve wished I’d had the talent to make a Flash animated version for an avatar.
