Life Changing
20 September 2002 | by (Norcross, GA) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this on HBO between programs back in 1987. In that time, I experienced the general chaos that is our planet Earth. Definitely one of the most meaningful animated shorts ever made. My life really did change after watching that.
