CineSavant Column

Tuesday June 25, 2019


No sun over Los Angeles today … and CineSavant will be taking a brief break!

I have no disc-related links in the hopper … but my magnificent significant spousal other came across something I didn’t know existed, a YouTube encoding of a 1982 animated Mafalda movie. Mafalda is a favorite, an Argentinian answer to Peanuts, perhaps, but not comparable for personalities. Malfalda and her friends have normal parents, a range of attitudes and the comic strips were often political. She has a fine personality and only acts up when things go bad or she feels cheated.

Oh … sorry, it’s in Spanish language only. The comics tripped me up because of the ‘vos’ that I can never keep straight. There’s a TV show, but this short feature looks as if it follows the comic strip in most essentials.

Thanks for reading! — Glenn Erickson
