Cartoon Production Information:

Encompassed all of the first book and half of the second of J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Ralph Bakshi's animated adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic fantasy was a commercial and critical failure when it was released. The primary complaint was that the film didn't have a conclusion, abruptly ending about halfway into the second book of the series ("The Two Towers"); in addition, many characters and events were dropped or only touched upon briefly, which angered many Tolkien fans, and the enormous complexity of the story was confusing to those unfamiliar with the books. Needless to say, the film's box office failure prevented Bakshi from completing his adaptation, and it would take more than 20 years for Tolkien to reach the screen again, with much greater success.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
