Heavy Metal
by Gerald Potterton, 1981 (Spanish)

A classic of adult animation. The movie spawned from a mix of french and american artist (from the Metal Hurlant and Heavy Metal magazines). Base drawings from people like Moebius, Juan Giménez, Berni Wrightson, and more, combined con a rocker soundtrack from Ozzy Ousborne, Black Sabath, Blue Öyster and the like. The animation seems quite flacky today, but it was absolutely impressive in the early 80's when I watched it for the first time.
