ABD's Saturday Morning Cartoons: Love & Hate

SMC feb 480x309
2/13 - 11AM
$10/free for members & children under 14

For this month’s sugar-packed, chocolate-covered, marshmallow-topped special Leap Year edition of Saturday Morning Cartoons, we’ve gathered all the tales of tenderness, feats of friendship, great romances, and cartoon camaraderie we could cram into one show, honoring St. Valentine! Our ode to the great Loves, Hates, and Friendships of the cartoon-iverse features Mickey and Minnie, Popeye and Olive Oyl, Ralph the sheepdog and Sam the wolf, plus plenty of surprises! From classic Pepe Le Pew foul play to modern day Regular Show shenanigans, it’s going to be a Saturday full of love and plenty of Happy Happy Joy Joy!

Curated commercial breaks, all-you-can-eat cereal bar, and a cash bar for the more grown up kids who want to enjoy a mimosa with their cartoons. Pajamas not mandatory, but encouraged.

ANIMATION BREAKDOWN: Locura Espanola - Spanish Contemporary Animated Shorts

locura espagnola 480x309
2/25 - 10:15PM
$12/free for members

This month ANIMATION BREAKDOWN has brought in an exiled, delusional Spaniard (former Spanish animation fest Animac curator Francesc Xavier de Manuel Ruiz) to program an insane selection of… Spanish. Contemporary. Animated. Shorts. ¡Olé! A bilingual compendium of animated “tapas” packed with spine-chilling fables, heart-warming violence, and a pinch of synesthetic experimentalism. Want some samples? Rejoice before the cutesy bear cubs of Alberto Vazquez in their hunt for unicorn blood! Discover the doomed CGI chimeras of Guillermo Garcia Carsí, the creator of Pocoyo! Witness a trio of cyber-tech apes in their battle against an unscrupulous, fascist dictator! Experience a millennia of messed-up history from the point-of-view of a stranded robo-alien! Locura Española is an aphrodisiacal experience straight from the land of Spanish madmen!
