The Horror Honeys: Saturday Morning Creepy Cartoon ~ 'Lupo the Butcher'

Saturday Morning Creepy Cartoon ~ 'Lupo the Butcher'




For today's Creepy Cartoon, I bring you the 1985 animated short Lupo the Butcher, about a man working in a butcher shop, who accidentally turns himself into Carpaccio.


The short was created in Vancouver, Canada and directed and animated by Danny Antonucci, who worked under International Rocketship Limited. Antonucci has a long career in animation from working at Hanna-Barbera, MTV to eventually Cartoon Network, where he created well known animated series, Ed, Edd and Eddy!

From studying animation, working on films, and knowing people who work in the animation industry (including a couple of my teachers who worked on this short!), I can tell you...

... Animators are really, really fucking weird people. And we love it!
