Eastern European animation certainly has improved.

Damn, I've seen less-impressive work on the big screen!

I hope this crew get a paying gig. This is excellent work in story and animation. Check out the rest of their Dji series.

OK that's mighty cool work there :)


In the mid 80s SBS broadcast a program called Kaleidoscope, which was made up of cartoon shorts from Europe, mostly from animation studios in Belgrade, Bratislavia and Helsinki.

And they looked like that Simpson short.

Not surprising, since the Simpsons short was exactly intended to mimic the Eastern European style of animation.

"Kaleidoscope" was the name of a BBC TV show mentioned in The Goon show episode "Ninteen eighty five" (http://www.thegoonshow.net/scripts_show.asp?title=s05e15_1985) but alas there's no information on it. I've often wondered what it was about, since it was clearly intended with the then audience being familiar with the name.
