Cartoons by Canadians: Rock & Rule (1983)

The first English Language animated feature made in Canada by Canadians — and an internationally bootlegged cult classic written by Peter Sauder and John Halfpenny.

Because Rock & Rule didn’t get an initial release, it nearly bankrupted the studio that made it, Nelvana. Nevetheless many of the animators went on to become well-known and Nelvana saved themselves with the commercially successful The Care Bears Movie, also written by Peter Sauder… and my next post.

Here’s the Wikipedia entry — and watch the trailer:
