I really hope they are able to make a second volume in the future. I love obscure animation, particularly from other countries. Considering how old and fragile this era of film stock is, the few shorts that are still out there must be preserved while they still can be. Do it for the children! (And the geeks!)
animated films. If you are into the history of animation, or just love animation you shouldn't pass up this amazing assortment of stop-motion gems.
I continue to be amazed by the care and quality that goes into all the Thundrbean productions.
