Suspended Animation is an album by Mike Patton's supergroup Fantômas. It is a concept album that incorporates a dual theme of cartoon sounds/music as well as paying tribute to obscure and dubious holidays throughout the month of April. The limited edition disc is a spiral bound April 2005 mini calendar featuring vivid imagery by Yoshitomo Nara. The disc sleeve is marked with "This calendar belongs to: .......... Your name".
