Probably the best animated film ever made!

The Thief and the Cobbler, created by the animator responsible for Roger Rabbit and the Pink Panther, was a beautiful film. That is, if it ever were completed properly. The film is probably the big inspiration for Disney's Aladdin, which was just as great. The animation is so brilliant, not even the likes of Disney or Don Bluth could top it. It's a film you'd have to feel bad for, since it took up... read more

I just re-discovered this lost classic (kudos), and what a wonderful reminiscent trip it was. Each frame was animated by hand with painstaking attention paid to every detail. The style is very distinct, feeling like a mix between modern animations and ancient Persian illustrations. This lends a sort of mature vibe to the whole film, which was Richard Williams’ intent. The Cobbler, who is the mai... read more

Hablando de la versión original de Richard Williams y no la basura que Warner Bros recortó y masacró, The thief and the cobbler es una película excelentemente animada, con, probablemente, una de las mejores animaciones de la historia.

“Hablando de la versión original de Richard Williams y no la basura que Warner Bros recortó y masacró, The thief and the cobbler es una película excelentemente animada, con, probablemente, una de las mejores animaciones de la historia.

Pero más allá del apartado técnico, los personajes son realmente buenos, con personalidades muy marcadas que hacen que el filme se mantenga entretenido durante toda su duración, la agresividad de Yum Yum, la estupidez del ladrón, la maliciosidad exagerada de ZigZag y la pasividad del zapatero hacen que la película sea entretenida.

Más allá de esto, la trama no es la gran cosa, no sucede algo realmente interesante y no hay algún mensaje en concreto, pero sigue siendo una película entretenida por su excelsa animación y sus mem” read more

"Recobbled Cut only."

Underrated Animated Films (16 movies items)

"The Recobbled Cut, most obviously. This film is a great example of executive meddling gone horribly wrong. Changing it from a supposed masterpiece by the great animator that brought you Who Framed Roger Rabbit to a shameful Disney knockoff is such an inexcusable disgrace. It definitely deserves a proper restoration treatment. Hopefully, it will in the future, as it's better late than never."
