MISFITS had a toon-a-thon yesterday; nine hours of animation. We had a fairly wide variety -- The Hunchback of Notre Dame, an episode of Batman, Freakazoid, Starship Troopers and The Tick, A Charlie Brown Chistmas and How the Grinch stole Christmas, and some Schoolhouse Rock as well. What was also interesting was a Japanese animated film that was very much not genre -- more a coming-of-age self-discovery woman's film -- it's the sort of movie I would be unlikely to watch if it was a live action American film, but the animation was gorgeous, and I think it says a lot about the maturity of animation in Japan that they can do animated films that aren't musicals like the Disney ones, and aren't as genre-specific.

As such, I found it interesting to watch. It is one of those things that I like about seeing movies in groups like that is I see films I wouldn't otherwise see.
