Chinese animations

December 28, 2010, 05:54 AM posted in General Discussion

This is a topic I would like to learn more about.  There are a number of genres and famous cartoon stories, such as Black Cat Police Chief.  

Any poddies who have links to share, please post here?  

I will start with 

经典国产动画片《三个和尚》 (3 monks)  

We have the three characters as little ceramic figures in our house - very cute.  This animation comes as a silent movie (just under 20 minutes.).

I am already slightly off-topic but I am excited by this: 

Guy Delisle (2006), Shenzhen: A Travelogue from China, Drawn & Quarterly Books, Montreal. 

Whether this strictly qualifies as Chinese animation I'm not sure.  It is a graphic novel telling about a Westerner's experience working as an animator in China.  

In parts it is laugh-out-loud funny.  And it is consistently a keen observation of modern China from a Westerner's point of view.  It reminded me of so many events and experiences in my first year in China.  Highly recommended for Chinese learners with a ridiculous sense of humour.

Hee hee.. :) Very nice :)

Page 3 made me laugh the most but Page 5 is also quite amusing. Might see if I can snag a copy from amazon.

Edit: Actually just ordered it along with 3 new Chinese learning books.. talk about impulse buying.. lol! Grabbed a copy of "Remembering Simplified Hanzi" (long overdue purchase), "Dirty Chinese" (by ex-ChinesePod Staff Matt Coleman) and a Chinese Measure Word Dictionary (a bit superfluous really.. but it's one of those things that I always uhm and arr about buying :))
