This short was made for the Cartoon Network as a part of their Cartoon Cartoon series, aired in theaters and was nominated for the Academy Award for Animated Short. The rules have been changed to preclude nominees from being part of a series or conceived originally for television from being eligible. I personally think this is an excellent short and while I understand the logic behind the rules change, I consider it a shame nonetheless. The success of this short led to a series called Courage the Cowardly Dog, one of the better series in a line-up of series that is widely variable as to quality (some of it quite good, all too much of it poor indeed) and is well worth watching. Cartoon Network still shows it occasionally. Recommended.
