Zunar's new animated feature - Enjoy!

Political cartoonist Zunar has come out with his latest take on Malaysian politics, and this time he goes one step further with a five-minute animated political satire.

Describing the production, posted on YouTube as well as on his website as "extremely low budget", Zunar hoped it was the beginning of better produced animated political cartoons in future.
"I plan to continue for the next series, but an animation production cannot proceed without financial help," he told Harakahdaily in a statement.

Seen as a first in Malaysia's less-travelled road of political satire, Zunar said the clip, titled '1 Funny Malaysia' based on his published works, was produced to fulfill fans' demands "as well as to venture a new dimension in my career using technologies".

Although the three main characters have been renamed in the clip, the references are obvious: slain Mongolian woman Altantuya Shaariibuu, prime minister Najib Razak and his wife Rosmah Mansor, all of whose caricature Zunar has been too used with drawing.

But the task of bringing Malaysian political characters alive also requires being alive financially. "I hope fans and supporters can contribute on the funding through my website," added Zunar
