Via KomadoriBrothers comes a stellar pair of action-packed doll animations shot in glorious 8mm.

"CAT's EYE PV by Japanese BARBIE" (Hirofumi Okamura, 1984) stars Licca-chan (a.k.a. "Japanese Barbie") in a riveting short film set to the theme song from the early-80s anime Cat's Eye.

And "Sailor-suited Fighter NANAMI-chan" (Satoshi Imai, 1988) kicks it up a notch with spectacular special effects and epic battles against Kuidaore Taro (Osaka's iconic clown mannequin) and a giant crab ship piloted by foreign invaders.
