‘Stranger Morning Cartoons’ Animates Our Favorite ‘Stranger Things’ Moments

'Stranger Morning Cartoons' animates our favorite moments from 'Stranger Things'.

It’s been nearly 3 years since we last checked in with Eleven, Hopper, and the gang in Hawkins. But after a very long pandemic-delayed wait, Stranger Things finally returns for a fourth season next month. As eagle-eyed fans set about decoding all the imagery in the recent trailer, the smash hit Netflix series is rolling out all sorts of cool stuff in advance of the season four premiere. Stranger Morning Cartoons is an animated anthology that reimagines some of the series’ best scenes. Netflix recruited six animation studios for these minute-long shorts, which showcase a variety of styles and tones.

The first clip is “Season 1 Recap” by BlindPig.TV, which artfully retells some of season one’s pivotal moments, such as Barb’s death, Eleven’s flashbacks, and Joyce’s Christmas lights. The second short, “The Van Flip” by SMOG, uses different textures and a paper-animation style to capture Season 1, Episode 7’s epic Eleven moment. “The Gate” by Will Barras & Hush London sees Hopper and Eleven attempt to close the portal to the Upside Down located in the underground subsystem of Hawkins National Laboratory, which took place in the season 2 finale of the series.
