The Battle of Wangapore

Charge into this slick amateur cartoon from the Grasshopper Group which was three years in the making

Amateur film 1955 9 mins Silent


Carry on cartooning – this remarkably slick production was made by a group of like-minded amateurs over three years. The Grasshopper Group was founded in the early 1950s with the unique idea that disparate filmmakers could work together via the postal service. John Daborn was the driving force, bringing together this award-winning production which was documented in an accompanying “making of” film – Let Battle Commence.
