Six years, 62,450 oil paintings by 115 artists, 94 paintings (Colossal), 600 letters (Slate), 3,000 litres of oil paint (great overview), and one movie about the life of Vincent Van Gogh (trailer).

Children Against Wizards

Cr1tikal/Penguinz0 and fellow The Official Podcast member Kaya Orsan (previously) have riffed on the recent terrible Russian children's film Children Against Wizards, made with support from the Russian government (parts 1, 2, 3). They don't understand a word of it, but understanding it can't possibly make it worse, right? ...Right? (English subtitles available for latter video. Contains references to drugs, suicide, religion and politics.)

The Adventures of Donkey Ollie, or, The Greatest Anime of All Time

Beloved YouTuber Cr1TiKaL (aka penguinz0) has teamed up with Kaya Orsan to provide commentary on the serialized Christian CGI animated series (with an unexpected live-action segment) Donkey Ollie. After the break, every single episode three ways each - Cr1TiKaL's cut-down version, Kaya's full version and the official version (funded and made available for free by the charity Boat Angel). To start, Episode 1 (abridged with commentary, uncut with commentary, original). The series has a surprising history, as revealed in the comments of the Boat Angel videos (e.g. Episode 4's) - animated in the 00's, but recorded in the late 80's and early 90's. [more inside]

The members of the Lost Media Wiki have been relentless in their pursuit of lost TV show episodes and the like... for better or for worse.

The Little Gray Wolf Will Come

Inside the world of the greatest living animator and the masterpiece he knows he may never finish
Cinephiles of Moscow, your evening’s entertainment: Yuri Norstein, 74, white-bearded, small, stout, urbane, rumpled, and mischievous. Sitting in front of a pale gold curtain, with a bump on his nose the size of a pistachio shell. Considered by many to be a great, if tragically self-defeating, Russian artist. Considered by many to be the finest animator in the world.

Hurry, Gather Your Companions

With Adventure Time ending in 2018, the void has already been pre-emptively filled by The Legend of Lucky Pie, a Chinese series that caused a stir upon its initial discovery when it was thought to be a televized Adventure Time knock-off, but which is actually being made by a small team with the goal of fighting the ‘tacky’ and ‘trite’ animated shows usually shown in Chinese media. Episode 1 (turn on YouTube subtitles if not already on; others have subtitles in video): Who Makes That Voice? Episode 2: The Zodiac Maze. Episode 3: If It's The Last Thing I Poo (and recent English dub). Episode 4: Coming Soon.

Do you want to watch a skeletal puppet duo perform "Oye Como Va?" I thought so. How about a lone skeleton puppet doing "Let's Twist Again?" But if rock isn't your bag, there's always the Walt Disney classic Silly Symphony: "The Skeleton Dance."

Content Warning: violence, some risque themes, unsettling imagery.

Heaping Handfuls of -- No, No I'm Not Saying It

Among the lesser-known post-Milne works involving Winnie the Pooh is Disney's syndicated comic strip, running from '78 to '88 (following all but one of the theatrical featurettes, preceding the first animated series and beginning before the live-action Welcome to Pooh Corner). It is most well known for its characterizations, as seen in a series of examples aptly named Poohdickery. You can read much more of the comic starting here (earliest comic in archive with working image). And apropos of this post about online Russian movies, the beloved and brilliant Soviet adaptation, Vinni Puh (One, Two, Three Part 1, Three Part 2) (Wikipedia: One, Two, Three).
