Storyline

Created in 1939, the National Film Board of Canada has produced and distributed literally thousands of films by and about Canadians, including hundreds of animated shorts. But despite the fact that these innovative cartoons received several Oscar wins and nominations, most were little-seen by Canada's neighbors to the south. Written by Charles Brubaker

I guess the Russians are not the only ones whom make good animation.
29 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

I miss this show so much. "O Canada" is a collection of animated shorts from Canada, shorts from the 1940s to the present. Each have a different type of subjects going on, from educational shorts, to faery tales to bizarre and abstract works. Each are unique in their own way and all are true art.

Just too bad I have not seen this in a while, no thanks to that un-Artistic, plotless Anime they are airing these days. No, I don't hate all oriental anime shows, just alot of them that are making it here are quite crappy copycats of each other. Just a ploy to make cheap Yen, Won and Dollars.

P.S. "The Cat Came Back" and the "Cinderella Peinguins" are my favorite shorts.

National Film Board of Canada, I salute you!
