Watch The Superb Oscar Nominated Toon, The Fantastic Flying Books Of Mr. Morris Lessmore

Apologies for the slow pace of posting today, but it was a day like no other. I spent my time in a hotel, hanging out with Muppets.

Right, apology over. While I travel home and try to catch up a little, here’s something to keep you beautifully entertainted. Moonbot Studios have made the entirety of their short film The Fantastic Flying Books of Morris Lessmore available to stream online. And here it is:

If on-their-game Pixar ever made a Buster Keaton short, it might be something like that. Not that I want to just define Moonbot by comparison to Pixar, or this film by its influences. Which is why I haven’t even mentioned The Wizard of O… damn. Co-directors William Joyce and Brandon Oldenburg have clearly been inspired by some classic films, but their own still feels pretty fresh.

I expect Morris Lessmore to be this year’s Oscar winner for best short film.

Thanks to Animatie for the embed.
