Top Cartoons: Dragon’s Lair II – Time Warp

Though the laserdisc game thing never tugged at my bobber as a kid, I couldn’t help but be mesmerized by the astounding animated short behind Dragon’s Lair II. Animated by Don Bluth, it has a tremendous mix of humor and darkness about it. I love Dirk’s constant lively motion: watch how he evades his enraged mother-in-law by climbing a snake, slashes a path across Carroll’s Wonderland, and the brilliant — absolutely brilliant — way that he removes a cursed ring from his love’s finger. I can watch some of these shots over and over and still marvel at the skill and hard work that must have gone into them.
