Hansel and Gretel Animated by Ray Harryhausen

Ray Harryhausen, the great stop-motion animator of dinosaurs, sea creatures and dancing skeletons made this version of Hansel and Gretel in 1951. The dolls are a bit off-putting if I must be honest about it. But it’s got some great movement and settings.  This is one of a series of films he made for children after World War II.

Who’s Hungry: Animation Based on Hansel & Gretel

Freshman CalArts animation student, David Ochs made this wonderfully dark and violent take on the Grimms story, Hansel and Gretel.  It is everything a good fairy tale should be – full of evil, danger, self-reliant heroes, terrible and disgusting villains, and threatening environments.  The artwork is gorgeous and the piece is beautifully animated and has a very unsettling soundtrack.
