Film Availability

For this list I tried to find whether a film can be found. Some films may have the wrong year. Also, some films that I put on the other list like Wizards I didn't find obscure enough to put on here. I might develop a standardized system to describe the film's availability. I didn't post links for online versions because if I do, it makes it easier for the wrong person to find it. This list has been a long time coming and I hope it's not too much of a letdown. For the future I might make icons to make it easier to read. For now though, enjoy what is the only list I know of for availability of a wide variety of obscure animated films. Enjoy and I'll hopefully another gem will get ignored by the mainstream so I'll have some new films to post about.
