Bowie and Animation
While listening to some David Bowie music tonight, I was reminded he was involved or related to quite a few animated projects:
The title song for “Cool World”
the Title song for “When The Wind Blows” (a movie that’s also in my top choices for most depressing films ever)
Voice acting, as Malthazar in “Arthur and the Invisibles” (“Arthur et les Minimoys”)
I guess his presence as ”The sovereign” in Venture Bros also counts, ha ha!
I also remember seeing another silly little animated Bowie thing, but I can’t put my finger on it. He was wearing the Union Jack coat from “Earthling” if memory serves me right.
Edit: Thank you everyone that pointed it out: did a voice as the Lord Royal Highness in Atlantis SquarePantis.
Edit: I almost forgot: he is also attached to the lovely Christmas tale “The Snowman”, doing the voice of older James in the re-released version.
Anything else I’ve missed? Probably, but these are some of the most known.
And, something I’ve been hunting for for ages, a song he wrote for the Rugrats Movie called “Sky Life” and never released…as far as I know. If anyone has information on that last one, let me know!?
