Albert the squirrel makes a startling discovery... an empty space where once his favourite scarf lay. He heads off into the forest only to find everyone else is preoccupied with worries of their own. He helps who he can before moving on but never seems to get any closer to his goal.

Anything George Takei does is almost sure to be brilliant and amusing!

'THE MISSING SCARF': Three and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

Every year the Oscar nominated animated shorts are also shown in theaters with a couple other so-called 'highly commended shorts' (which bring the total running time to feature length). This year the commended cartoons include this dark satire about overcoming fear. It was written and directed by Eoin Duffy and is narrated by George Takei. It's filled with pretty simplistic animation and tells a pretty simple story about a squirrel, in search of his scarf, who comes across a series of insecure animals on his journey. The short is also filled with dark and edgy humor and comes to a great (somewhat shocking) conclusion. It's one of the more funny animated short films I've seen recently and anything George Takei does is almost sure to be brilliant and amusing!
