"The BFG: Big Friendly Giant (1989)" deserves a U.S.A. Blu-ray Release.




Cartoon Research: Animation Anecdotes #385
By Jim Korkis

BFG.
On December 25th, 1989, ITV in the United Kingdom broadcast an animated film based on the Roald Dahl book about a big friendly giant and produced by Cosgrove Hall Films. It was their first and only full length film. The film was dedicated to animator George Jackson who worked on numerous Cosgrove Hall productions.

In the film, BFG peforms a whizzpop for the queen. Whizzpop was author Roald Dahl’s term in the book for breaking wind.

“We hope it comes over as a funny sequence. We didn’t intend any offense. Whizzpopping is an important part of the book and we felt that if we had left it out on grounds of taste people would have accused us of chickening out,” said producer Brian Cosgrove who also directed the film.

The other challenge was creating an image of Her Royal Majesty. Cosgrove said, “We agreed it was a contemporary story and it needed the real Queen to give it authenticity. We got as close as we could. Our Queen is perhaps a little younger than Her Majesty is now but we hope we have made her a sympathetic character, one who will strike a chord of recognition.” The result was a caricature of Queen Elizabeth voiced by Angela Thorne.

Princess Diana found out about the ninety-minute film when she met a Thames TV executive at a royal premiere. She asked for a video copy and supposedly according to a palace insider, “Di, Charles and the Queen were delighted.”

Cosgrove said, “I painted a watercolour of how we saw (the giant). I got a lovely note back from Dahl saying it was perfect; he was right behind it, and to just get on and do it. Sophie, the little girl who befriends the BFG, was easy. I had read that Dahl based her on his granddaughter, Sophie. At the time she wore John Lennon glasses, so we took it from there.”

Another animated movie that can be on Blu-ray:
"The Rugrats Movie (1998)".




Cartoon Research: Animation Anecdotes #388
By Jim Korkis

The Rugrats Movie.
The Rugrats Movie (1998) based on the Nickelodeon television series was co-directed by Norton Virgien. Two episodes of Rugrats that won Emmy Awards were directed by Virgien. He said when the film was first released: “Most of us who worked on the first season all had little babies about the Rugrats ages at home. That’s what we knew at the time. That made it a lot different from many of the shows that are kind of genre shows about superheroes or cats and mice.

“So many people that have tried animation outside of Disney have followed the template to such a degree that it’s hard to tell them apart. Thankfully, the show had proved itself to the degree that Paramount and Nickelodeon were willing to let us continue playing to the strength of Rugrats on television.

“I started work at Hanna-Barbera in the 1970s and this was very different. We did a show entirely in crayon to show the characters’ imagination bringing their crayon drawings to life. The chance of us doing that when I was working at Hanna-Barbera was zero. If you look back at the days when Scooby-Doo was about the best thing being done, it was pretty sad. It was a very discouraging field for a while.”
