Asterix in Britain (the animated movie)
From the late 60s through to the early 90s various Asterix animated films were produced (at which point they, for some unfathomable reason, switched to live action) and they are a bit of a mixed bunch but when they got it right as they did with '...in Britain' it is a perfect accompaniment to messieurs Goscinny and Uderzo's book.
For those of you with an ear for these things watch out for Frank Welker ('Fred' from Scooby-Doo) as 'Anticlimax' and (The Simpson's 'Troy McClure') Phil Hartman as 'Stratocumulus'.
So please sit back, add just a spot of milk in your hot water and enjoy.
