The Hubleys used the same technique a number of times to varying degrees of success
This short, nominated for an Oscar, was made by the Hubleys using a technique they used a number of times-taping a more-or-less free form conversation, usually between two of their children to form the soundtrack and then animating around the conversation. They won an Oscar in 1959 using this technique with Moonbird. Windy Day works a bit better than most of their attempts at doing this. The conversation between their daughters here does not become tedious as Moonbird did toward the end (although the animation is excellent in both throughout) and this is a very worthy effort well worth seeking out. Recommended.
