I’m such a sap. It takes very little for me to turn on the waterworks, and it was nip and tuck at the end. But this is so charming I had to share it. This is up for an Oscar for animated short, and deservedly so. “The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore” is the product of Moonbot Studios. Take 15 minutes and be transported.
UPDATE 3-4-2012 It’s back! Who knows for how long?
UPDATE 2/26/2012: They seem to have locked down the video, it’s password protected now. Sorry folks. It is available on iTunes for $1.99.
