“Garabonciák” by Dóra Keresztes and István Orosz “Garabonciák” by Dóra Keresztes and István Orosz

I think one could easily make the case that in the early-1980s, the most visually inventive and coolest looking cartoons in the world were being made in Hungary. To bolster the theory, here’s a 1985 piece of Hungarian psychedelia directed by Dóra Keresztes and István Orosz. The title Garabonciák translates to Wizards in English, and the music was composed by Károly Cserepes. Someone somewhere really needs to put together a retrospective of Eighties Hungarian features and shorts.
