Obviously everyone knows the live action Peter Jackson Lord of the Rings, but I'm wondering how many people have seen the animated (and in my opinion superior) animated versions from the 1970s and '80s.

1978: Lord of the Rings by Ralph Bakshi.

1977: The Hobbit by Rankin/Bass.

1980: The Return of the King by Rankin/Bass

ITT: Huge waves of nostalgia.

...and the bassist comes up to the EQ and moves all the sliders into the typical smiley face pattern and in a really thick Jamaican accent said "you can't have de bass without de smiley face"

I liked them even though they scared me. I only saw the first one and don't remember much. I might check them out again ^^

I <3 the Rankin/Bass Gollum. So much better, he's the sole reason I was disappointed by the Two Towers.

EDIT: There are links to both movies in their entirety on youtube.

It is simple. 90% of the LotR movie fans had never heard of the books before the movies came out and probably have still never read them.

I read all of them right before the first one came out. I was like, "Dammit..."

I have the 1978 one on dvd, never seen the hobbit cartoon, but it looks pretty awful there.

the return of the king looks interesting.

Seen them: yes.
Read all the books (including the Hobbit and Silmarillion): yes, and loved them.
Better than live action:

Aren't there 16 or so books in all?

I recall The Book of Lost Tales and The Book of Lost Tales II, but I thought there were many more published.

Technically yes, but I mean the books that directly pertain to the story of the One Ring and the end of the Third Age.

And the Silmarillion just to see where it all came from.

I remember all of them. My dad is a huge Tolkien fan, so I've always been exposed to it. Great story, great characters, all around awesome.

My favorite of the old movies is The Hobbit. It's still good even now.

tbh most of those 16 werent finished and only published after Tolkiens death, so i wouldnt consider them oo importat- just extra material if your interested

Oh wow, I just found out that the Rankin/Bass Gollum IS actually more accurate.

"His skin became hairless, black and clammy, and his body thin and gaunt. His head was like a skull and his eyes bulged like those of a fish. His teeth grew long like orc fangs, and his Hobbit feet grew flat and webbed."



Score 1 for frog Gollum and hand drawn movie lovers everywhere!

Even if his skin IS green.
