The King and the Mockingbird, 1980 - ★★★

Both inspired by and inspirational The King and The Mockingbird is a strange concoction of nearly every animation style. Perhaps a result of it's lengthy gestation period (which I was unaware of before I watched) all of the characters feel like they've fallen out of their own film and landed in this bizarre world. This isn't a huge problem but I found that the strangeness never managed to reach a cohesiveness in the same way the best Ghibli films do.
