La Linea.

I was reminded today of the cute Italian cartoon La Linea.  Drawn in the 70s by Osvaldo Cavandoli, it's a cartoon drawn in a single white line on a plain coloured background.  The main character and the cartoonist interact, with the cartoonist drawing obstacles for the character to deal with.  He is very emotional, and he sometimes gets very angry with the cartoonist, yelling and swearing at him in Milanese gibberish.  I love the hand gestures he makes too, to me they are so Italian!

There are heaps of videos on YouTube, but I've included a couple for you to enjoy.

This one, Eroslinea, is very strange!

I hope you like them as much as I do!  xx
