  1. It's a been a long time since I watched an animated film.

    1. Now I've given you a very wide choice :)

  2. Nice varieties of animation there.

    1. Some are 3D some are 2D, some for kids, some for adults, and all from different countries.

  3. Of all these, I think Bonobo Joe is my favorite! Those monkeys got style. LOL

    1. That's the one I wasn't sure I should include in the post, but I was like - da heck, I will, many people love monkeys :) My fave are the two about the kings, but you know I love everything historical.

    2. The story line is probably better, but I can't get past the animation. Reminds me of Dragon Ball Z. &, we do love monkeys. :)

    3. Some of these animated movies are 2D not 3D, like that Claus movie last Xmas on Netflix, they are more artsy, it is refreshing seeing them as so many animated movies look like Disney these days.

  4. You know we do delight in anything animated. Latte would probably be my first pick from this lineup, but Bonobo I would probably like for the accents alone.

    1. I think Latte is already available either on DVD or on streamers, not sure. There are a few new ones in the style of Tim Burton, but I avoided those as they seemed a bit too dark.
