Episode 98. The Bluthian Blues Feat. Jason Harden

Friend of the podcast Jason Harden joins the show once again to talk with Alex and Jonathan about the animation of Don Bluth in The Secret of NIMH (1982), The Land Before Time (1988), and Anastasia (1997). We discuss Bluth’s beginnings with his short film Banjo the Woodpile Cat (1979), the darker tone in his films than most animated entertainment, the ways his animation differed from the Disney films of that time.
