It’s got adventure, it’s got comedy, it’s got giant hovercraft called The Spirit of Freedom: we promise this Escape from Metro City clip for Astro Boy will rock your rocket-powered socks.

Video: Kung Fu Zombies

Video: Kung Fu Zombies

Inspired by 80s/90s cartoons, Intergalactic Kung Fu Zombies is a commendable two-man effort; sure, it’s bit campy and the “battle” at 7:20 made us LOL, but we can’t wait for more.

Halo Legends: Babysitter

Like an artsy Matrix, Artificial Paradise, Inc is filled with organo-metallic monsters and wonderfully creepy sound effects; it was selected by both SIGGRAPH 2009 and ONEDOTZERO.

Short Film: Tarboy

Short Film: Tarboy

Tarboy is partly an animated short film with fighting robots and explosions galore, but it’s also an amazing technical demo: the entire movie was animated using Flash. Thanks, Will!

Short Film: Exeter Library

Short Film: Exeter Library

Based on the Philips Exeter Academy Library, Alex Roman’s atmospheric short film may look real, but it’s a partially CG work created with 3ds Max, Vray, AE and Premiere.

South Park: Unaired Pilot

South Park: Unaired Pilot

South Park’s all-construction paper Unaired Pilot is viewable for 30 days; it runs 2 min longer than Cartman Gets An Anal Probe with four minutes of unseen footage. Thanks, Andrew!

The full trailer for Astro Boy is finally up and starts off the same as the teaser, but really kicks ass with new characters, humor and action; the animated movie hits theaters 10/23.

Short Film: The Seafarers

Short Film: The Seafarers

Slightly NSFW: The voice acting is hammy and it starts off slow, but The Seafarer redeems itself in the second half: think giant robots with laser beams, machine guns and cannons.

Funny: Down To Earth

Funny: Down To Earth

As if taking a cement block elevator to the ocean floor weren’t enough: Down to Earth is a funny short film about a pinstriped mobster who can’t catch a break even in his final moments.

Weird Al x JibJab: CNR

It’s complete nonsense, but what beautiful nonsense it is: Birdy Nam Nam puts Daft Punk and Heavy Metal in a blender and spits out robots, sneakers, sugar cubes and sarcophagi.

Short Film: Virgile

Video: Video Games

Video: Video Games

Slightly NSFW: created as the prologue for a documentary, the simply-titled Video Games is an eccentric (but awesome) mashup of classic games that borders on being raunchy.

Donatello Gets Screwed

Donatello Gets Screwed

The humor in Donatello Gets Screwed is pretty crude (particularly from an ornery Splinter), but we couldn’t help laughing at (and pitying) the forgotten fourth Ninja Turtle’s plight.

Music Video: Skipper Dan

Music Video: Skipper Dan

Done up as a retro-style cartoon, Weird Al’s Skipper Dan may be about a Hollywood actor but is a tongue-in-cheek look at something we can all relate to: having your dreams crushed.

Short Film: Musicotherapie

Short Film: Musicotherapie

Monkey doctors, octopus sushi chefs, brain-eating anteaters: you might have to get therapy after Musicotherapie; it’s a ridiculously weird short film which is both hypnotic and neurotic.
