Wow...they just showed "I Met the Walrus" on television after the Oscars ended...amazing!

It is really worth checking out. A twelve year old kid interviewed John Lennon and this conversation was animated with computer animation...abstract, funny, insightful and beautiful.

I should mention that I also saw one of the other nominees for that category called Madame Tootely Pootely (or something like that) and I am surprised it didn't win tonight as it really is quite heavy too. It was made in Quebec.

I saw that NFB Oscar entry as part of the Ottawa Animation Festival this past September and while it looked fantastic, the story didn't add up for me.

Interesting...not sure what you wanted to add up though...to me it is just abstract art with a beautiful underlying message, great soundtrack (spoken word!) and some contemporary, and interesting animation...
