Jan and Jan-Peter's Action Selection: way-out series in series
Short film aficionados, Jan-Peter Meier and Jan Bauer, have dug deep into the animated film box and have brought a choice selection of lesser-known animated series to the projector light. Bizarre designs, absurd gags and senseless violence – this cult night celebrates the fun of the extreme.

Superjail! takes us behind the walls of a prison with unpredictable hardened criminals and a load of mad personnel. Seldom has brutality been shown in such a fast-paced and imaginative fashion – a psychedelic splatter spree. French puppet animation series, A town called panic reveals itself to be completely non-violent. Touchingly drawn characters from the world of toy Indians and plastic cowboys present a firework of situational comedy in an animation style which is demonstratively unpolished. Action heroes and toys are also the stars in Robot Chicken, an absurd and lively parody of American television – the very finest TV zapping! In Chowder a kitchen boy must master the everyday challenges of a catering service – fascinatingly abstruse and not just for children. Samurai Jack is considerably more serious, but no less superb. A Samurai warrior with a magic sword is looking for a way back into the past in a futuristic fantasy world. Wonderful designs and exuberant production ideas with diverse echoes of the world of sci-fi and fantasy cinema earned the series a total of four Emmys – and a place in the cult night program. Talking about cult; as far as way-out series are concerned, we cannot forget The Ren and Stimpy Show. The psychedelic stories of choleric Chihuahua Ren Höek and fat tomcat Stimpson "Stimpy" J. Cat are still among the most bizarre characters that the genre has to offer.
