Our Secret Cyber-Monday DVD Contest!

It’s “Cyber Monday” in the US, the Monday after Thanksgiving: the biggest online shopping day of the year. However we at Cartoon Brew have nothing to sell you. In fact, we are giving things away.

Yes it’s another pop quiz – and the first five readers to post the correct answer below (in the Comments section) will win a DVD copy of documentary Adventures in Plymptoons.

Courtesy of our friends at Plymptoons and Cinema Libre Studio Adventures in Plymptoons! goes deep inside the method and madness of America’s most independent animator, creatively incubated in his hometown of Portland, Oregon. Interviews with many of Plympton’s collaborators, such as Tom Kenny (voice of SpongeBob SquarePants), David Silverman (Director, The Simpsons Movie), Terry Gilliam (Director, Monty Python and the Holy Grail), Ed Begley, Jr., Moby and “Weird Al” Yankovic, offer candid and comedic insights into the irreverent man who has become an international success by not selling out.

When we run out of Plymptoons DVDs, the next three correct answers will win a DVD of the Academy Award nominated French animated feature A Cat In Paris.

Courtesy of our friends at GKids and NewVideo, the Academy Award-nominated A Cat In Paris is a beautifully hand-drawn caper set in the shadow-drenched alleyways of Paris; a witty and stylish “animated noir” with a jazzy soundtrack featuring Billie Holiday and a thrilling climax on top of Notre Dame cathedral, featuring the voices of Academy Award winner Marcia Gay Harden (Mystic River), Academy Award winner Anjelica Huston (The Royal Tenenbaums) and Matthew Modine (Full Metal Jacket).

And the Trivia Question is:

What was the name of Bill Plympton’s first animated feature film?


Winners will be contacted by email and will be required to give their mailing address. If you didn’t win, I still highly recommend you get both videos – both are hugely entertaining and make great Holiday gifts for the animation fan in your family.
