Storyline

Animated from the point of view of a small child. The viewer is jumping down a suburban street, and progressive jumps are higher and higher. The viewer/child lands in various city settings, a jungle, a battle field, the depths of Hell, and finally back to the street where the adventure began. The film is notable for the use of perspective in pre-CGI animation. Written by <gopher_baroque@hotmail.com>

Life Changing

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.
