Fred Crippen


Legendary!
Simple as that!

Coming as it did out of the 60’s, it was probably a bit of a shot at the ‘Top Guns” of the era - those jet fuelled ego baskets who were household names in their day and who promised to share with America the slipstreams their sleek jet planes and rockets were creating in the national psyche.

As a kind of cojoined parody/homage figure, Roger Ramjet has stood the test of time. Every aspect of these episodes murmur and scream “classic”.

Sparsely but brilliantly drawn, cheesey but bitingly well written and with voice talent that is over the top and spot on in terms of capturing the various nuances of the work, these Roger Ramjet episodes show us how its done.

With 120 episodes to choose from, it was always going to be fun selecting this line-up. The next best fun is to come along and see which ones we picked.

Fred Crippen & Roger Ramjet

Where to begin? Fred Crippen is a legend…. well, to true animation geeks he is. Being welcomed into the tiny, low ceiling studio he has spent 50 years animating in is little short of a pilgrimage. But it is probably his most famous creation – Roger Ramjet – that cuts the most ice with the wider world. And fair enough – Roger Ramjet is an icon; a beacon illuminating what can be achieved on minimal budget but with a iron clad determination to remain independent to the last and a near bottomless reservoir of good ideas. Fred was one of the original maestro’s that made UPA the powerhouse of originality that it became. So, yes UPA. Yes, Roger Ramjet. But what can one say about a career that traverses wonderful kids segments for Sesame Street and fruity animated limericks for the Playboy Channel; public service messages about hygene and a film depicting the best 48 ways to use the “f” word. In the face of this challenge, MIAF goes to default mode…. Yep, we’re showing the lot!


Suitable for audiences under the age of 18

IMPORTANT: Film classification regulations do not allow us to admit any person under the age of 18 years EXCEPT to the Kids Program, Teen Program, Roger Ramjet & Careers in Animation Forum.
