Animato! was a magazine that was dedicated to animation, generally viewed by animation fans as a successor to Michael Barrier's pioneering Funnyworld and David Mruz's Mindrot/Animania.[1]

History and profile[edit]

Animato! was founded and initially edited by Michael A. Ventrella in Boston in the early 1980s and featured the film Rock & Rule as its first cover.[citation needed] Harry McCracken later become editor and expanded the magazine to full sized with a color cover.[citation needed]
