Obscure Animated character: Papagena by StressedJenny Obscure Animated character: Papagena by StressedJenny
I re-discovered an animation I used to watch over and over again when I was a kid and this character popped up and was like "OMG! I LOVED HER! She was so cute!" So I had a go at drawing her. I really love how she could still look pretty without eyebrows.

I would be astonished if anyone could tell me what animation this character was from.

Please guess ^__^ I've already revealed her name so thats a clue.

I'll be adding to this drawing with another character so I'll let you know what it's from when I upload them together.

Nice picture!!!!

Is that Papagena from BBC's "The Magic Flute"? 

I'm a big fan of that cartoon, and wish it weren't so obscure.

No, it's from one of the animated adaptations of the opera The Magic Flute.

papagena from the magic flute.
ahahaha ya I remember having a old movie character memory that I didnt have a clue as to what it was called till a few years ago. For me it was the animation "the princess and the cobbler" or the princess and the theif. tack somehow reminded me of a mute aladdin. just with how the story played out between him and the princess.

Wait... are you saying there was a cartoon of the Magic Flute?! I used to have a radio-show type cassette of it as a kid.

Strange images surface from the back of my mind at this. Is that the one where they end up in a MASSIVE tree, singing a word that sounds like 'Popogiggle' at each other? And little french artistocrat bird babies pop out of the sides of the tree each time?
If not, I really haven't a clue what that is XD

I used to watch a version of it when I was a child. As I recall it, it was a mix of human actors and animated scenes. Don't think it is the animated kind you saw though.

She is SO adorable! You did such an amazing job, what with the colours, the design, and how you interpreted the character. Her pose and expression is made of win, especially those little lips and that little half-smile of hers.

I only heard of a Papagena from Mozart's "The Magic Flute". That was of course not originally an animation, but who knows, maybe it was animated later on?
Am I even close? XD
