A Morning Stroll (2011)

When a New Yorker walks past a chicken on his morning stroll, we are left to wonder which one is the real city slicker.

Set against the background of New York's bustling streets, this is the story of a true urban dweller: a hefty and fluffy white chicken. Spanning a century in 50-year intervals, starting off in 1959, this is a documentation of diverse time periods as well as the human evolution, pivoting around the same street corner of a single city block.

Though I didn't think it would've won the Oscar, I wanted it to win

People keep saying this short is nothing special, I beg to differ! The story asks a question that has never been asked before: What happens after the chicken crosses the road? It may not seem interesting at first, it turns out to be one hell of a fun, hilarious, ride. It's set in three time pieces all with different animation with the same event a man notices a chicken walk to his house and go inside it. One thing I love about this short is it's animation. Like I said before, it's three different types of animation and each one is very creative and fits the mood of the three settings perfectly. I can't say anything else about the animation because it would give away the ending, so, let's just say it's creative. Speaking of the ending, it's really funny!!! Again, SPOILERS!!!!! So I can't say why I like it! I don't know why I love this short so much other then the animation and ending. I just do!!! Just go search it up on Bing and watch it you will not regret it!
