Grendel Grendel Grendel (1981)

An Australian animated musical comedy directed by Alexander Stitt.
The main part of the epic poem, Beowulf is told from the monster's perspective.
So unique! The animation looked like a combination of traditional cartoon and cut paper. Superfluous musical numbers punctuated the film's main points, with vocals by Grendel, the dragon, clams, Hrothgar's "shaper" and an inept warrior. The humor element was mainly in character design, plot and Australian dialect dialogue. This was aided by a lighthearted presentation. My only problem with this was that much of it was too dark and nebulous in the video. If you're looking for good animation, this is definitely worth watching. I rate it awesome.
