The "Diary of a Worm" reveals how a young worm discovers, day by day, that there are some very good and some not so good things about being a worm in this great big world.

The humans change their tune after Anatole becomes the cheese taster and cheese rater for the Duval Cheese Factory. A boy may be a mischievous rogue, but he still knows that "Frog Goes to Dinner" only at home. Frog, however, has a habit of escaping his notice, and sneaks along. A little girl wanders through the house, crying, "I Lost My Bear!" She asks her mother, father, and older sister for help, to no avail. At the end of a long day, she finally spots him, in the most unlikely spot!

Worst cartoons ever!( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hosted by animation historian Jerry Beck, this film brings together a selection of cartoons from when TV was in its infancy. Some of the greatest animators ever, such as Hugh Harmon, are included in this collection--but everyone has to start somewhere! Nobody sets out to make bad cartoons, but cartoons were thought of as 'filler, ' so budgets were minuscule, and titles were churned out as quickly as possible. This film includes cartoon characters with moving human mouths, others with no mouths at all, some blatant cold war propaganda, and even silhouetted human beings prancing around drawn backgrounds. Cheesy fun for everyone!

Lost classics from Zagreb film( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Within a just a few years of releasing its first theatrical short in 1956, the Zagreb Film studio had established itself as a world leader of innovative animated fare. Located in the former Yugoslavia, far away from the hubs of animation production, the Zagreb shorts charted their own course, revolting against the traditional and conventional, and injecting a modern asthetic into a medium often known for its rigid mechanization and blandness. The studio built its reputation not by developing a stable of cartoon characters, but rather by concerning itself with the creation of films that expressed individuality and personal viewpoints. French film critic Georges Sadoul dubbed their films the "Zagreb School of Animation," a name that quickly became synonymous with quality and creativity. Directors and designers like Vladimir Kristl, Boris Kolar, Aleksandar Marks, Vatroslav Mimica and Nikola Kostelac pushed and pulled the animated cartoon in any number of directions, stretching the potential of the medium to unprecedented peaks. This DVD brings together a dazzling array of eleven of the studio's shorts produced during its formative years (1957-1963). The collection highlights the freewheeling spirit of graphic experimentation and the relentless search for new ideas by the Zagreb team {u2013} from the brooding adaptation of the Balzac tale, La Peau de Chagrin, to the Cold War send-up, Boomerang, to the sweet children's tale, The Boy and the Ball, to the frenetic graphic romp The Great Jewel Robbery. The timeless animated shorts in this collection {u2013} all appearing on DVD for the first time {u2013} will inspire and entertain time and time again."--Rembrandt films website
