    Marine Boy (1966)



    I used to watch this all the time when it ran on syndication during the early 70's. Unlike "Speed Racer" however, this Japanime classic seems to be mostly forgotten.

    I actually own this. One of my childhood favorites, and was so happy to find it years ago: The Russian animated feature The Snow Queen, 1957.



    They have the whole movie, in parts or as a whole.

    Octocat! 'Randy Peters' trolled the internet with this great and fascinating cartoon. Originally posted on YouTube periodically, this is all five parts stitched together. Stick around for (what was originally) Part Five.

    The Cartoon Circus roku channel is great for finding weirdo public domain toons.

    Edit: it's been yanked.

    I remember this from the Pee Wee's Playhouse 1981 HBO special.

    I thought this thread was for obscurities?

    If we're doing classics...

    Nandarou? From Studio Ghibli, that brought you Kiki's Delivery Service and other great full-length features.

    Czech interpretation of Alice in Wonderland, live mixed with stop motion. Very strange and surreal.

    8Man: An early anime series that has since been revived twice. Once as a live-action movie, and a second time as an OAV (Original Animated Video). I've read it mentioned that might be an inspiration for Robocop.

    Anything posted on YouTube can't be too obscure or rare

    I think that YouTube allows items that are rare or obscure to become known in a way which would not be possible via any other means. Without YouTube, many videos would never have been seen again (such as in the case where the creative team destroyed the videos and the only remaining copies are in the hands of collectors). However, even with YouTube there are many videos which are still not available, and many videos are only available for a short time (catch 'em while you can!).

    An example of this was a cartoon I posted early, Fraidy Cat. A fairly obscure cartoon from a show (Uncle Kroc's Block) that was quickly cancelled (and considered one of the worst Saturday Morning television shows). If you hadn't caught it like I had, it is likely that you would never have heard of it. Yet, there was something about it that stayed with me. It was one of those concepts that, in the right hands, had the potential to be an excellent series.
