A line is in love with a dot but the relationship seems doomed--until the line learns he isn't quite as dull and "pointless" as he thought.
While I don't know if this cartoon deserved the Oscar since it's hard to be a hold of older animated shorts and since the animation was so simple, but it is very clever and is probably a film that Geometry teachers would love and talk about and watch again and again!! While this sounds like I hated the film, I didn't--it just didn't thrill me and the idea seemed like it went on just a bit too long. However, because of its uniqueness and how it actually explains mathematical concepts in a fun way, it's a very good film. People that love the novel "Flatland" would also probably love this little film directed by Chuck Jones.
