Animation in the 80's was great, especially for someone like me who grew up on shows like Mysterious Cities of Gold, Ulysses 31, Dogtanian and Around the World in 80 Days with Willie Fogg. I have a rose tinted view of past cartoons and I am obviously not alone in feeling this as Wesley Louis has created an incredibly well-animated opening sequence that stylistically recalls the style of animation that was created from Japan, China and South Korea, much to the ignorance of the Western pubic.
The bad tracking and white noise associated with old video tapes from the 80's is perfectly used to make it seem like an actual show from the 80's or early 90's, it reminds me mostly of Bucky O'Hare.
In Wesley's own words:
Wesley Louis drew 'Super Turbo Atomic Ninja Rabbit' as a comic when he was 13. It was time to realise the dreams of a geeky kid by animating the intro to the best TV-series that never was. 'Super Turbo Atomic Ninja Rabbit' A love letter to Saturday morning cartoons from the 80’s and 90’s.
