greeting /co/, I'm interested in finding examples of classic literature or children's books that have been made into cartoons.

What's funny about Katri, Girl of the Meadows is that even though it's based on a Finnish book and takes place in Finland, it was never released in Finland.
>>
>>78768353
no one likes Finland, not even Finland.

This, and the actual novel it's based on, is pretty underappreciated.

There's also a version of Oliver Twist where he's a talking dog.

Are The Last Unicorn and The Hobbit considered children's books? Rankin-Bass made movies out of them, also with the Narnia series iirc.

Fantastic planet was based on a French novel. It was finally translated to English a few years ago.
>>
>>78775049
The Little Prince also had an anime adaption that ran on Nick Jr back before anime was a word.
>>
>>78775049
It's still a really, really good series that is very true to the book. I think there's an english dub out there if that's your concern. Also Miyazaki worked on it.
>>
>>78775103
Only saw half of one episode of the CGI version before I had to shut it off. I couldn't handle how far off it was from the other series and the book.

there's a very thin line between anime and outsourced animation in the 80's cartoons, and /co/ has been always very afraid about it.
>>
>>78766315
Beautiful looking too

>>78775927
The 80's was a blurred time.

>>78776791
But it gave us many gems, like Superbook.

It was decent.

>>78766315
If you want to watch something godawful and get a good laugh out of it. There's a series of these shitty literature animations. I bought it for $5 at BAM a few years back, best money ever spent... it's so horrible I love it.

it's the same kind of animation I remember from a robinson crusoe cartoon I once watched
>>
>>78766315
Just check out the anime in the World Classic Theater collection. Some well know novels been adapted.

>>78776775
I hated that book so much, but the animation made me appreciate it more.

fairly decent for what it is, but the franchise could really use a modern version(it'd probably do well as a Netflix Original series)
>>
>>78766315
Anne of Green Gables! I loved the book and the cartoon. Well, it was made by Miyazaki. So I suppose it's actually an anime, but it's such a good one.

I haven't read the book this was based on, so I'm kind of unsure if it was actually a children's book.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the Moomins yet

Chuck Jones did some really good Jungle Book adaptations. Rikki Tikki Tavi, The White Seal, and Mowgli's Brothers. He also did a very good Christmas Carol cartoon.

Oh and the feature length Phantom Tollbooth movie.
