Synopsis:

The short Broken Down Film is just that: broken. The film has aged poorly and the projector has trouble keeping the frame straight, but the protagonist is well aware of this. Exploiting these conditions the bumbling cowboy attempts to rescue a damsel in distress and win her heart.

Legend of the Forest

Legend of the Forest
  • Movie (1 ep x 29 min)
  • 1988

Set to Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony, Legend of the Forest is a voiceless tale of human encroachment into the forests and its furry and feathered inhabitants. With only a chainsaw, one man will destroy families and lives for his own selfish gain, and the citizens of the forest will never be the same. Join the varied cast of birds, trees, squirrels, gnomes and fairy folk as they struggle to survive in their dying homeland...

This is more of a recommendation based on style rather than actual content. Legend of the Forest and Broken Down Film are both in the style of early western animation, both in the visual appearance of the characters and musical sound design. If you liked the 'classic' style of animation of one of these, then it is well worth checking out the other.

Memory

Memory
  • Movie (1 ep x 5 min)
  • 1964

The memory works in mysterious ways. From stereotypes that help us to remember people, to what is left of the day we broke up, or even to what other creatures will remember of humans after our race is extinguished, the abstract comments of the narrator are illustrated in a literal way by the animation - resulting in holy toilet cities and other cyclopean creatures.

These are both two old, comic, experimental shorts from Osamu Tezuka. If amused by one, you may like the other.

Both are homages/tributes to old, classic black & white cartoons.  While they go about this in different ways, I think that if you like one you will like the other.  They are also both short.

Ningyo

Ningyo
  • Movie (1 ep x 8 min)
  • 1964

With no speech, Ningyo relates the story of a boy who falls in love with a mermaid. Their love blossoms in wonderful places (and through amusing games), but when living in a world of prohibition, one can not daydream as he pleases: torture and brainwashing should teach the boy what reality is made of, and that does not include mermaids...

Both Ningyo and Broken Down Film are funny and relaxing to watch. Although Ningyo has a more serious topic, the simplified graphics give both anime a similar feeling to them.

Shizuku

Shizuku
  • Movie (1 ep x 4 min)
  • 1965

A man is on a raft. He has spent a long time at sea, desperate for some drinkable water. Luckily, some drops of the precious liquid are stuck on his sail, and will provide him with just what he needs. Or rather, it would do so if he wasn't so unlucky: from naughty birds to harassing winds, everything stands in the way between him and his drink. Will he survive until he reaches land?

Theta

These are 2 of Tezuka's better animations. Both are shorts and have a rustic, but unique and amusing animation style.
