  • I'm trying to remember this old Saturday morning specials from the 80's. It was not a running series but a one time movie. Someone invented a time machine and in one time period picks up what looks like a blue elephant that can float by inflating his trunk. In another part, they end up in medieval period where they had to deal with a dragon, which turned out to be another blue elephant in disguise.

  • Hey there's this movie that's been driving me crazy I remember a lot of it except the name so here goes:
    It was an anime movie that was shown on tv around 1994. The main character was a young humanoid that looked like a black haired boy, he went on a journey alongside a woman, way taller than him that appeared human, she was almost naked albeit a piece of fabric that looped around her neck, covered her breasts and was held by a belt at the waist, she was very voluptuous and also had thick black hair, tan skin and red lips. Part of the scenes included:
    An informant that looked like a leprachaun and meets them atop a mushroom, later he leads them into a house where, they are attacked and the leprachaun is shot to death.
    There is also a great battle scene in which the villain forced fairies to run inside a machine to generate energy for a video projector, he used it to project images of war into the battlefield, the creatures who were the same race as the main character were running into the battlefield when the film started rolling. They were so surprised they stood completely still as the opposing army massacred them.
    There is also another scene near the ending where the woman who was traveling with them through a snowy landscape, betrays them and fights the main character who at the end stabs her and causes her skin to melt off her bones.

    That is all I remember I hope it helps cause I'm dying to see this again after so many years! Thanks for your help!

  • Hey guys, I am looking for a movie I watched as a child, maybe late 70's early 80's, not sure. The only thing I remember is that there was a boy who lived in a house and had to cross through a forest and get to a lake. Once at the lake he would dive in and he would transform into an animated character and vs. I don't recall if he dived in with friends or not, but I believe it was a daily deal when he did this. That is all I remember, wondering if anyone could help me out. Thank you

  • @Brenda- could it be Waterbabies? Above water, it was live action movie but underwater it's all animated. There weren't many mixed live and animated movies at that time and Waterbabies is the only one I can think of that involves underwater swimming.

    www.imdb.com/title/tt0078477/ for the movie I am thinking of, to see if it's what you may be thinking of as well.

  • Hey, I need help finding a movie I watched as a little kid. I don't remember much. (It was an animated movie, it had the same graphics as cinderella or bambi or any other movie like that.) It started out with this little girl that was in a house and there was another lady with her, I think the lady was her mom, anyways it was night time and something bad came into the house and the women hid the girl in a cabniet before the bad thing came in the house. Then when it got in the house it killed the women and the girl saw the whole thing. After that the girl eventually left the house. I don't remember anything after that.

    This movie has been bothering me for a long time because I haven't been able to find it. If you could help me find it I would appreciate it.

  • @Drauph Ralph Bakshi's Wizards in wonderful. In fact any Ralph Bakshi movie from that period is great. The only movie from him i did not like was Cool World. He did the Lord of the Rings animated film. Heavy Traffic which is my next fav after Wizards, Fritz the
    cat and Fire and Ice. If you liek his style check those out but Wizards is my all time fav from him.
    Never ignore coincidence. Unless, of course, you’re busy. In which case, always ignore coincidence.

  • there is an animated film from the 80's that i have been looking for. It reminded me a little of Star Wars with a very Han Solo character and the character his crew picks up (much like Luke) I dont remeber much about the plot but there were space pirates and the ship they were on had a long neck (sort of like the Serenity ship) and was white. I think one of the main characters was a robot too.

    Now i know this is super vague but its been some 20 years since i have seen it. I think the word Star was in the title as well.

    As i said it really mirrored Star Wars in a lot of ways but thats all i can really remeber. any help would be awesome.

  • also i think the robot character was a fussy female bot and i remeber it was one of the fist animated movies where the character cursed. I remember them saying "son of a b-----"

    The Han solo scoundral character always had a cigar in his mouth and the Luke like character had a sword and wore a blue vest.

  • I have a very obscure movie/cartoon that I've been looking for for a very long time. Unfortunately my memory of it is very fuzzy so these details may not be enough but it is what I remember.

    I remember the song Shout from Tears for Fear being in the show. There was a blue animated creature chasing a drop of water. I don't think it was a music video because I thought I remember it being a part of a show that was mixed live action and animation.
