Fantastic Animation Festival is a package film of animation segments, set mostly to music, released to theaters in 1977. It was one of the earliest of the sort of collections typified by Computer Animation Festival and Spike and Mike's Sick and Twisted Festival of Animation. [1]

Included in its 16 segments were the first national appearance of Will Vinton's Claymation (Closed Mondays and Mountain Music), Bambi Meets Godzilla, and a previously seen Superman cartoon from the 1940s (The Mechanical Monsters). The original running time was 107 minutes, later edited down to 91 minutes, and then for television, to 80 minutes.
