Rock & Rule

One of my very favourite cartoons is the greatly under-rated Rock & Rule. It’s set in a post-apocalyptic future where humans are extinct, but the animals have mutated into human-like beings. Think Goofy and Mickey Mouse, just… sexy :-p . It’s a musical extravaganza about an aging rock star who kidnaps a beautiful young singer when he finds out that her voice is the key to opening a hell-portal, releasing malevolent demons. The music is great, too, performed by some of classic rock’s greatest bands: Blondie’s Deborah Harry, Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, Earth Wind and Fire, and Cheap Trick. If you haven’t seen it yet, I reccomend it very much! 10/10!

This film is not currently on Netflix. I located a copy on YouTube, but it’s not the best quality. It might be a little hard to find a physical copy of the original, but if you can find one, it’s definitely worth the price. But I’ll be nice and link the YouTube version anyways, hehe. Enjoy!
