All questions in this episode will relate to feature length animated films. For our purposes, the animated films must have been released theatricality and be feature length. Sadly this excludes some holiday TV favorites such as the Rankin-Bass Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Those disappointing exclusions aside, the question can be anything to do with the animated movies chosen by our cast members.
Each of our 8 members will take a turn reading the 10 questions they have prepared for this week. All other members attempt to answer them. The audio is available for download/listening here on celluloidering.com or free from the iTunes store. A list of the questions and individual cast member scores from the week are available in “Full Post”. Answers are also in “Full Post” at the bottom of the page, so please scroll down carefully if you wish to avoid them.
