A week or so back I found a post on animator Dan Meth’s blog about a freaky Russian animated film from the 1980′s called Mystery of the Third Planet.
As he described, the film is full of imaginative designs of alien creatures and foliage. And the lead character has a killer mullet and looks like Egon from Ghostbusters.
Dan mentioned the movie is out on DVD and available at Ebay for 99 cents a copy so I quickly ordered one to see this masterpiece for myself. And it is completely worth a couple bucks. It’s a 60 minute film and holds up the entire way through, mostly by virtue of the bizarre visual designs. The video quality is crap, but this is still apparently an official release, not bootleg. All the same, worth the cash.
But I totally overpaid on Ebay. It is available for you to buy right now for 1 penny at Amazon. Get into it!
