All thanks to our buddy Tom over at “Quiner’s Diner” for bringing this to our attention.
I have two sons, and so generally I’ve watched (or I’m at least passively aware of) most animated offerings. Which is why having this one slip under my radar is a touch disconcerting.
It’s from Disney, so it’s not as if it was made by some backwater unknown production company, and released in the dead of night. Heck, it even won the 2012 Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film, and I still never heard of it??
How did this happen? Where was I?
It’s beautifully rendered, and for an extra-special touch of nostalgia, it’s done entirely in black-&-white. Honestly, it may be the nicest little vignette I’ve seen since the first few minutes of ‘Up‘.
So do yourself a favor: turn up the sound, sit back, …and enjoy:
