Some of my favorite "short" films

by Mister_Wolf | created - 03 May 2012 | updated - 29 Mar 2013 | Public

There's just not enough love or appreciation for short films. I love 'em, especially the old Disney/Merrie Melodies. I can sometimes get more enjoyment from a 4-6 min short than I can from feature films.

I've seen thousands, but here are some of my favorites.

I have capped the running time @ 50 mins., with the exception of one "ABC Stage 67" Episode: 'A Christmas Memory' (51 mins.).
