Check out the celebratory clip from Tara Billinger and Zach Bellissimo
Lupin the Third is back, bay-bee! Fans all over the world are excited for the upcoming PART 6, celebrating the long-running series's 50th anniversary. And some talented folks are getting in on the celebrations — including animators Tara Billinger and Zach Bellissimo.
Billinger (Disney's Mickey Mouse shorts) and Bellissimo (Victor & Valentino, Rick and Morty) are the co-creators of indie cartoon pilot Long Gone Gulch, and also fans of the legendary thief created by the late Kazuhiko Kato (a.k.a. Monkey Punch). To celebrate Kato's birthday, the 50th anniversary of Lupin the Third, and the announcement of PART 6, they've created this cool eyecatch — depicting Lupin's many looks in anime and manga:
