An animated xmas with paper dog Snap

Animation & Artists Moving Image 1960 6 mins


Snip the magic scissors ensures that Snap the paper dog has a very Merry Christmas in this 60s British TV animation

Give me a happy Christmas and make it snip-snappy! Sadly, few remember the adventures of Snip the magic scissors and Snap the cut-out paper dog. Animators Halas & Batchelor (best known for the 1954 animated feature cartoon Animal Farm) worked with the Danish origami whizz Thoki Yenn (or Thok for short) on this delightful and charming series. One of the earliest British animated TV series., it ran for over 25 episodes on ITV.
