Saturday Morning-After Cartoons
MARCH 31 » 12:45p
As a child, Saturday mornings were about waking up early, pouring yourself a bowl of cereal, and parking in front of the TV for several hours of cartoons while your parents slept. As an adult, Saturday morning is often about recovering from the night before. Unfortunately, this program of bizarre animated shorts may not help you recover. You may even doubt whether you’ve sobered up entirely. From cartoon to clay to computer-generated, these aren’t the anthropomorphic rabbits, rodents, and aardvarks of your youth. Pajamas and bathrobes are encouraged. DONUTS WILL BE SERVED.

Leonardo De Luzio
A glimpse into the life of two characters in a unique apartment. An existential Tom & Jerry of sorts.
There’s a Dead Crow Outside
There’s a dead crow… outside. The flies are buzzing and the raccoon is hungry.
If Skeletor wandered into The Dark Crystal. A retro animated film in the spirit of Ray Harryhausen.
A short, animated journey from chaos to tranquility as seen through an airplane window.
Murgi Keno Mutant (Attack of the Killer Mutant Chickens)
A Bangladeshi cross between Street Sharks and Street Fighter with giant chickens.
An unsettling tale of a fly that thinks a grub has hatched from its egg.
Being Bradford Dillman
Like if Arnold were Helga’s imaginary friend and the embodiment of her supposedly severed penis.
Dziad i Baba
A Polish folktale meets Fraggle Rock. Eventually every happily-ever-after story must one day end.
Remember that cartoon CatDog? That show was terrible. This is nothing like that.
A snake, potted plants, and bugs are drawn to the light. Honestly, I have no idea what this is about.
Ad & Substract
The world of a junior accountant explodes. The closest thing to a conventional cartoon in this program.
A chess match of deathly importance. The sole referee is a figure no one wishes to meet.
The Lady Paranorma
An eccentric woman hears ghostly voices. The audience hears narration by Peter Murphy of Bauhaus.
Beast of Hearts
In the distant future, a cryptic deity recounts the kismet of an Alien Space Bat and his nemesis.
