      There was always "proper" ratings. Just for a long time there was only two ratings, then there was three, then they made four. They always knew what "adult" content was, but they could never figure out what was appropriate for everyone else.

      Also people were way less stingy about "adult" things in general back then and didn't mind that your kid's movie was full of innuendo, violence, and existential dread.

        They were less stingy about adult concept in a fairy tale moral sense. They were more stingy with sex. Now it's have all the tits you want but you better not think too hard.

      I watched this film for the first time this year, as a 30-year-old adult, on a friend’s recommendation and I was an emotional husk by the end of it. It’s extremely powerful for a children’s animated film, it touches on themes and ideas that kids wouldn’t be allowed within 500 feet of nowadays for fear of incepting independent thought, and has some top-quality production values and aesthetics courtesy of a team of Japanese animation legends.

    Yep.
    I watched this when I was about eight or so in the 80s.
    It mindfucked me for years.
    It's over thirty years later, and I can still remember watching it, staring intently, in a giant house on VHS in a room, by myself, during a family reunion.
    Dozens of cousins running around outside, around 11 at night, aunts and uncles getting drunk and and likely a little bit high. It was late summer, and probably 75 degrees or so outside, we had a huge cookout with burgers, hotdogs, beer, oysters, mounds of chips.
    The tape was my cousins, she was a year older than me, and her little brother was same age I was, and we hung out, but he said he didn't want to watch it because he had already seen it a bunch.
    This movie blew my frigging mind as a kid.
    I've seen it a few times since, tryin g to recapture that feeling, but like any good drug, it never happens. I just feel a ghost of it.
    I have not tried rewatching while drunk. It may be a thing to try.

        Topcraft would actually split into three companies after the blockbuster hit of Nausicaa.
        They became Studio Ghibli, Gainax, and Pacific Animation Corporation (which would end up animating more Rankin/Bass shows before they got bought by Disney and turned into Walt Disney Animation Japan, responsible for many direct-to-video sequels).
        There's actually a funny situation in 1997 when each studio had a movie that year. WDAJ had Pooh's Grand Adventure: The Search for Christopher Robin, Gainax had The End of Evangelion, and Ghibli had Princess Mononoke.

      It's extremely melancholy and is actually all about death and immortality and the loss of innocence

    Friendly reminder The Last Unicorn was made by Rankin and Bass. The same company that made the claymation Rudolph films.
    Absolutely based.

      This is probably the only movie I've ever seen that does a male-female friendship legitimately well, with regards to Schmendrick and The Unicorn

    Saw this flick as a very young child and almost everything scared me. The witch, her weird zoo, the harpy, the red bull, the talking skellington

      Unironically schizophrenia. If you read into what's he's saying, he gives away the twist early.

      What is he counting? Unicorns.
      It's also somewhat sad to hear him struggle to get the actual advice out. He does legitimately sound trapped in his own sporadic thoughts.

    It's a cartoon for girls and gays and tv is full of gays that have never touched grass so it's popular here.

    It's one of the very few films that will actually make me cry. I watched it all the time as a kid but didn't really understand it; now as an adult it hits hard.
