Welcome back to Animated Shorts week!

Today we’ve got Simsala Grimm’s Beauty and the Beast episode. Simsala Grimm is a German television series that originally aired in 1999, and was revived in 2010. It features Yoyo and Doc Croc, a pair of adventuring critters who travel within fairy tale worlds. This episode comes from the 2010 reboot and features a nicely energetic Beauty and Beast with a gentle nod to the tale’s more troublesome angles. The animation and designs are functional, but look more like a series from the mid-90s than a 2010 production.
