One of John Kricfalusi's early works
One of my favorite animators of all times is Jonhn Kricafalusi of Ren and Stimpy fame. I stumbled across this eighties movie intro for that terrible movie "Troop Beverly Hills" starring Shelley Long. I have vague memories of watching this movie on VHS (wikipedia link for those of you who might not remember this format) in 1989. I remember how I lost interest in the film shortly after the opening credits. It wasn't until recent that I learned that it was done by the great John K. Now when I see it, it's kinda obvious by the rendering of the dogs, busty ladies and his trademark animation style. Check out more of his great stuff on youtube here. The Björk video is great and, his take on Yogi Bear and The Jetsons is a little disturbing.
