Great short - wish I could see it again, 18 August 2005
Author: timothyhodge from Tennessee, US

This is a great little short started in the animators' off hours at the Animation studio at the Disney/MGM Studios theme park in Florida. It's a great blend of traditional and CG animation that tells the story of the struggle of a rocking horse to regain the affection of a young boy who has turned his attention to his video games. The irony id that the "old" toy (the horse) is animated in the modern animation style, while the video game playing kid is good, old- fashioned hand drawn cel animation. This short was Barry Cook's directorial debut. He went on to helm the Roger Rabbit short "Trail Mix-Up" and co-direct "Mulan" with Tony Bancroft.

It appears on the laser-disc version of "Honey, I Blew Up the Kid!" (I believe), but nowhere since. I only wish Disney would see fit to release it as a special feature or an Easter egg on a current DVD.
