lt's been a long While since cartoons were deemed the preserve of tiny kiddyWinks or dope-fuelled students whose only goal in life was seeking double entendres in characters’ names. These days, the cartoon is a serious artform as Channel 4’s Animation Week (Saturday 23—Friday 29 September) aims to show. Among the many JOyS to be beheld are Matt Groening’s Futurama, Candy Guard's Pond Life and Adam 81 joe’s World OfAnimation. Celebrities such as Martin Kemp, Jo Whiley and Johnny Vaughan Will be picking their favourite moments in Our Toon While there is subversive stuff aplenty in How To Make Love To A Woman, Captain Sarcastic and B/ubber Boy.

Beck's appeal

Next time you toss away your empty bottle of lager (sure/y, place carefully in the recycling bin? ed), double check it’s not a valuable collector’s edition. Dennistoun's Roderick Buchanan is the latest in a long line of artists to design a Beck’s limited edition bottle. Having won the Beck’s Futures arts prize (on show at Glasgow's CCA until 14 October), Buchanan has created three labels entitled 'one of three stills from Sodastream'. There are only 1000 of them,

but The List has three to give away see page 76.
