Middelboe Chronicles, Part 73: The Boy Who Had No Story

And now we come, at last, to the final installment of the Middelboe Chronicles – appropriately enough, a story about stories: The Boy Who Had No Story (“Animated Tales of the World,” 2003, from Ireland) – and, incidentally, the third story in a row posted here to deal with (inter alia) Noah’s Ark.

Of the 75 Middelboeverse episodes I’ve been able to identify, I’ve now posted 73 here – omitting only Moby Dick and Twelfth Night, which seem to be unavailable online.

And while we’re on the subject of animated adaptations of Irish legends, I want to put in a plug for the remarkably beautiful movie The Secret of Kells (a French-Irish-Belgian production, not part of the variously Welsh-Russian-Spanish-Hungarian Middelboeverse, but clearly a worthy rival thereunto):

Our revels now are ended. (But be of good cheer, the SciFi SongFest continues through Hallowe’en.)

    Those who like The Secret of Kells might like Song of the Sea. Like The Secret of Kells, Song of the Sea was directed by Tomm Moore, produced by studio Cartoon Saloon, and nominated for the Oscar for Best Animated Feature.
