Hi once again.

First of all, I would like to thank a badmovies.org team for creating such a great forum.  Thumbup

Here goes another quiz:

I remember watching a Japanese cartoon (something similar to transformers in drawing style), where a big corporation was selling water to people.
The more water they drunk, the more thirsty they were. Finally, everybody who was drinking, mummified and became dust.
Another guy (superhero, I suppose) was trying to stop this corporation.

It seemed to me like a propaganda against Coke and Sprite. :)

Thanks in advance.

At first reading your description made me think immediately of Crystal Triangle (1987), a film I used to have but sold probably 15 or 16 years ago.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0159387/

Reading the synopsis of it on imdb makes me think this is not the right film, but it does have sort of a super hero/secret agent versus a corporation. The one scene I remember was the ending battle which takes place at the pyramids in Egypt.

What I remember about this one is that it turns out God is a giant blue grub.  Soon after we learn the truth about God, he gets squished.  It probably doesn't help that I saw this on a fan-subbed VHS many years ago.

Yeah this was a shot in the dark, but it sounds like what the OP is looking for is probably an animation that was produced in the '80s. It had been so long since I had seen Crystal Triangle that I only had the vaguest memories of it.

concur with Gly- had that nice bright, happy looking animation style for such a dour cartoon- your movie had green pods in it?

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
