Best European cartoons.

#1

Post by VG_Addict » Sat Feb 08, 2020 9:57 am

Usually, when people talk about animation, they either talk about American cartoons or anime. But what about Europe? Surely, Europe has put out some good cartoons as well.

What are the best European cartoons? Either shows or movies is fine.

I never thought about it and don't know of any. Their games certainly used to suck on classic consoles but I can't tell where a game is made anymore these days.

^Ooh, yeah.

Did you see 'The Illusionist'? That was Chomet's next flick. I thought it was pretty good.

I haven't watched much animation lately, but I recall enjoying The Pirates!.

When the Wind Blows is good too, if you're in the mood to be depressed.

the heck are you talking about? Peppa Pig is a great kids' show, it's legitimately funny and entertaining.

You two are the only people I've met who had anything positive to say about Peppa Pig and aren't children themselves.

Everyone I've met despises that show. Not to the level of Dora or Caillou though. (Granted I think they have every reason to hate THOSE shows. :P )
