Hello Scribble Junketeers! I'm happy to announce the winners of the top U.S. indie cartoons. First of all, let me say we had a very good response – lots of participants. But, sad to say, most of the choices were within the last 10 years – I was hoping to get more of the older films from such talents as Sally Cruikshank, Mike Jittlov, George Griffin, Corky Quackenbush, Winsor McCay, the Hubleys, etc. But that's okay – I guess our readership is more of the highly valued youth vote. So, I've decided to reveal ten of the winning films, because we had so many great ones. I'm listing them in order of number of votes, so the top vote getters are first, and on down the line.
In any case, "THE ENVELOPE PLEASE!" drum roll…
3. Son of Satan – J.J. Villard
Those are the winners, folks! Don Hertzfeldt scored big-time, he gets the gold statuette!This was so much fun, I think I'll do it again next year – so start making your list and checking it twice, we'll ask for ballots on the first of December. Thanks to all who participated! Let us know if you don't want the Youtube links up!
