And to stoke those creative ember, we’ve delved into the archives to bring you this animation from Christmas past. The level of detail is fantastic. Joseph Peller hand-painted all of the figures and props in this stunning slice of stop-motion.

Yule Log

Cartoon Food TV are getting into the festive spirit with another lovely Yule Log, this time from Greg Gunn, a talented animator, director person from LA. The Yule logs are all part of a digital gallery of animated Yule logs curated by Daniel Savage and built by Wondersauce.

Invade All Humans

Today is Show Us The Funny Fridays on Cartoon Food TV. Check out this sneak peak of a new comedy animation from Nexus. It’s the everyday tale of two deranged robot-toys bent on world domination all set to a techno-rap soundtrack. It’s called Invade All Of The Humans and it looks great.

The Dog With The Cat Inside

We’re dedicating Thursdays to all our animal friends. Animated antics on creatures great and small.

The Dog With The Cat Inside is an animation by Siri Melchior from Trunk Animation. It has a wonderfully poetic and whimsical quality. The film was made 5 years ago, but the animation hasn’t dated. Take a five minute break to enjoy it.
