‘Super Golden Friends’ is Pure Nightmare Fuel

Rotoscoping in animation can, at times, be used for good. Tracing over live footage can add a sense of realism to different works and still keep an animated feel. Examples of good technique can be found in Max and Dave Fleischer’s early 1940s Superman cartoon series, as well as this year’s amazing anime Sakamichi No Apollon (Kids on the Slope).

But there are times when rotoscoping can be used for evil. The above video is all the proof I need to make that statement. You take two things that, on their own, are fun and entertaining (in this case it’s The Golden Girls and DC’s Super Friends)… Then combine them to make something… Well, completely creepy and unsettling.

That Batman Knuckle-Bite will haunt me for the rest of the week.

Hit the jump to the view two “good” examples of rotoscoping.

    l know this doesn’t really have 2 do anything w/ the subject at hand, but l thought l’d post this animated fan film, by Robb Pratt, as a bit of a pallet cleanser 🙂 Warner Bros. really needs 2 snatch this guy uip!

    I agree. That top video was very… unsettling…. Aquaman creeped the heck out of me. My brain couldn’t process anything I saw in those 46 seconds.

    Guess I should watch the good vids now, huh?
