The 1980 Rankin/Bass animated version of The Return of the King isn’t without its flaws, but it is lovable in spite of them. And it also has this earwormy song! I often find myself humming it when I’m feeling overwhelmed by a Work in Progress, or writing up one on my WIP-it Wednesdays. ;-)

I’ve always loved the character design of the orcs in this film. My orcs in Vivian’s Last Cigarette don’t look much like them at all, but their ashen green skin is directly inspired by theirs.
