In the western blocks, there was funding for the animation studios, mostly from NFB and the U.S. the U.S funded Great Britain to make promotional political works, promoting the Marshall plan. Due to the economic situation, the western blocks were able to create colorfully and Disney-like animations, along with creating new techniques such as stereoscopy, pixilation, and direct sound. In the eastern blocks, there was more of a restricted animation. They had animations made for propoganda. China in the late 1960s economy was so bad to the point where animation almost stopped because they couldn’t fund it. Although this was the case in china, the soviet union funded their animators to create films made to promote soviet ideology. They even created a more minimalistic modern style to the Disney style that many countries used.
