Watch Oscar-Winning Animated Short "Fantastic Flying Books"Submit Comment
During the Academy Awards on Sunday, "The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr Morris Lessmore" won an Oscar for Best Animated Short, beating Pixar's "La Luna." The short is now online and you can watch it below.

Plot: Following a hurricane which destroys his town, Morris is whisked away to a colorful old house full of books which come alive and interact with him, spreading happiness in the community. He remains their guardian for years until it's time for him to pass the duties to the next person.

The short combines stop-motion, 2D animation, and CGI. It is inspired by Hurricane Katrina, Buster Keaton, "The Wizard of Oz," and a love for books.

I'm at work, a five minute trailer is acceptable but I can't sit around for 15 minutes. The opening 4 seconds look promising though I might watch the rest when I reach my humble abode.

A short about the joy of books? lol. If you have to remind people that reading books can be both fun and educational through a f*cking attention-deficit cartoon, you've already lost the battle.

Better to sit them down with some Cocoa Crack cereal, or whatever, and endless hours of Thundercats, and they're good to go.

*SPOILER ALERT*






...And in the end the books had won, as slowly more humans succ*mbed to the madness at the house on the hill. For all they would do is read until the day they died sans love or human warmth...

So Hollywood hates books and they don't want us to read?

Who'd a thunk it?

I'll watch. Eventually. For the CGI, but the story? No thanks.

I'll watch because someone may have spliced the sex scene between myself and PlasticGoof's handy-capped (thank you very much!) daughter.

She's handy-capped... which I found to be quite.. handy.
