MOONBIRD

Michael Sporn has a nice blog post today about John and Faith Hubley’s classic 1959 short film MOONBIRD. Sporn’s post includes some of Bobe Cannon’s original animation drawings, which are things of beauty. There’s also a surprisingly clean print of MOONBIRD available on YouTube. Animation is rarely this poetic or beautiful, but with Hubley and Cannon teamed up, one wouldn’t expect anything else. Enjoy.
