Animated German TV trailers from the 70's

Today I finally found some childhood memories, maybe of interest to those who ask me about my influences. These trailers introduced certain re-occuring programs for years.

"Der Film-Club" (
"Das Gruselkabinett" (
These were most probably done by Helmut Herbst (, who, together with Franz Winzentsen (, formed the Hamburg based studio Cinegrafik. Much of their work used cutout animation, but in general "mixed media" would be a better fit.

"Der Phantastische Film" (
This design practically screams Heinz Edelmann (, who, as we all know, was responsible for the design (and even part of the script) of Yellow Submarine.

very nice piece of art, if you dont say its from the seventies i would have guessed that they were produced today. strange how cartoons can be timeless and looks good even after 40 years.
i also love cutout, experiencing with it, just nowadays found a cute little cutout made by an English guy /made in photoshop (layers) and AE/
