Nobody ever believed me that this title existed...
I remember seeing this cartoon back when I was eight years old back in '85. For some reason, I remembered it being claymation, but I guess I'm just going senile. Anyways, for years I remembered this rather head-trippy, dark, and slightly sadistic, but rather magical cartoon, but most of my friends thought I was crazy. The most memorable thing was the scary ampitheatre full of monsters chanting "Into the machine! Into the machine!" and turning poor little Squeaker into a bat demon thing.
Anyways, for years, since the advent of the internet, I scoured the web for any trace of this wonderful animated adventure, but sadly came up short. I was starting to think I might of imagined it all... until recently, when I met a friend who saw the same thing and actually remembered the title. So now I googled the title and all the memories came back to me.
It's a pity I can't find an English region-1 DVD or VHS of it. I'd of loved to see it again. ;_;
