A masterpiece, 22 November 2001
Author: Colin McEvoy (homer_simpson91@hotmail.com) from Pennsylvania, USA

By far the greatest short I have ever seen. The style of animation in this short is very interesting and a little dark, but appropriate for the story. The moral of the short, the need for cooperation in society and what could happen without it, comes through clearly and is well done. It won the Oscar for Best Short Film in 1990, and it certainly deserved it. Check this out!
