The Great Toy Robbery is a fine Canadian animated holiday short
Just discovered this quite funny animated short from Warren Leonhardt on his blog as linked from The National Film Board of Canada site. It takes place in the Old West with a cowboy, some robbers, and Santa Claus. Oh, and some toys. It takes a while but the way the gags are timed, you just can't help double up with laughter at how sudden some movements are and the way the whole thing is executed. Kudos go to director/co-animator Jeffrey Hale, Derek Lamb who did the storyboard and design, Don Douglas for the cool music, and Richard Gilbert for the voices. Oh, and I loved the way that horse doesn't always listen to the cowboy's commands! So on that note, I highly recommend The Great Toy Robbery.
