Okay, there's already a topic on the wierdest, most disturbing movies out there, so I thought I would make one on the wierdest, trippiest, strangest, and disturbing animated series, animated movies, cartoon shorts out there, which includes, of course, sometimes the wierdest of the wierd, anime! :D

So what are the wierdest, trippiest, and/or most disturbing cartoons you have ever seen

Here's my list:

Ren & Stimpy (My list is in no particular order, but if it was, this cartoon would be at the top. It has got to be the most disgusting, disturbing, wierdest cartoon I have ever seen in my life!)

Cow & Chicken (This cartoon can be very wierd, gross, stupid, and disturbing all at the same time!)

Fooly Cooly (I have to say, this has got to be the wierdest, trippiest, wackiest anime series I have ever seen! It makes completely no sense! And what the heck is with the giant superweapons growing out of people's heads?!!)

The Beatles and the Yellow Submarine (There's no doubt in my mind that the people who made this were completely stoned.)

Arabian Nights (Thoroughly enjoyed it. Has to be one of my favorite animated movies. The trippy wierdness in it is what held a lot of my appeal.)

Serial Experiment Lain (I just can't seem to make hheads or tailsoutof this anime series. Very wierd.)

That's all I can think of currently.

Good list there. I loved Ren & Stimpy about 10 years ago, but haven't seen the new "adult"-oriented one... apparently it's even more messed up than the original.

Personally the weirdest stuff I've seen by far has been during Spike & Mike's Sick and Twisted Animation Festival which rolls through Vancouver once a year. I'm not sure if it exists in the States, but it's insane. Some stuff is funny, some is gross or gory, some makes you cringe, and some is down right disgusting and makes you want to hurl!

Evangelion of course and possibly Pokemon in my earlier much gekkier days.

No contest. Watership Down is the strangest I've ever seen. Ren & Stimpy is more of a study in tongue in cheek stupidity, in my humble opinion.

I remember watching Watership Down as a kid. Wasn't that interesting, but I kept watching it for some reason.

yes, well, I'll have to go with 'Furi Kuri' as well.

Light Years is a good one, though the bastids seem to have renamed it Gandahar. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0095525/

Since Watership Down was already given, I will add another from the same author, but much more depressing, The Plague Dogs. http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0084509/

The idea behind the Maxx series was genius, but as to whether or not it lived up to it, you would have to judge for yourself. http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0112065/

Liquid Television, one of the few good things to come out of MTV, was a great place for this type of stuff. http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0101134/

As you can see, this is a favorite topic of mine.

I thought Furi Kuri was delightfully bizarre. Loved it.

Liquid Telivision was awesome. Lots of great stuff on that.

I was a big fan of the Maxx too, but I was into the comic long before the show, so my enjoyment of it was basically a given.

If you wanna count 'The Wall,' it was fairly odd.
