One of the most "talkative" no dialouge shorts I've ever seen! :wink:

:mrgreen:

I just LOVE the end where all the little birds loose their

feathers and the large bird just honks with laughter. :lol:

This short is so funny. I loved the birds and that one akward bird. So hilarious. But the

theme of the short really stood out to me.

It's prolly just me but I gotta say it, when the little

birds are all "shouting" and the goofy one starts to "sing" along doesn't it sorta sound

like a sax just for that one second? Jus getting my thoughts out here. :mrgreen:

According to Ralph Eggleston's commentary, they made this short purely for fun. And it won an Oscar. Fun's

not a bad ingrediant to add into a short, eh?

It's a great little short, and a nice timeless one as well,

like Geri's Game.

Yeah, it quite possibly is a sax. Watching the short again, he does sound

like one for a few seconds, though not when he's laughing or anything.

Agreed. It's amazing that

many companies these days seem to forget that "fun" is actually quite integral and necessary for

success!!

What a great short . . . talk about Karma!

Didja ever notice that

only a certain amount of the birds (mainly the center) have a distinct personality? :mrgreen:

Yeah, they mentioned that in the commentary. I don't think I ever picked up

on it before watching the commentary, but then, I only watched it a few times before watching it with the

commentary, so who knows, maybe I would have eventually. :roll: It's certainly a clever touch. I remember that

after finding that out, I especially enjoyed watching the snobby one; no offense to our many members from the

U.K., but he looks so, well, British. :lol:

Pixfan- Yeah, I noticed that

after watching it a couple of times through. But it isn't overly obvious, and doesn't spoil the short at

all.
