More classic animation: The Monk and the Fish

This film competed with "The Big Story" for the Oscar in 1995 (both lost to "Bob's Birthday", which I haven't seen). Beautiful, simple, entertaining animation and a soulful story - typical for Michael Dudok de Wit. See his other shorts, including Oscar-winner, "Father and Daughter".

The Monk and the Fish


  1. Oh yes, this one is great! Haven't seen it since my first year in animation school. It was good then, but I appreciate it much more now. I love the simplicity of it and it works so well with just the musical soundtrack. Beautiful layouts and compositions too. I've seen "Bob's Birthday" but it's also about eight years ago. Remember it was quite amusing though.

    Thanks for sharing:)


  2. LOL "The Big Snit"!!! another one I haven't seen for a loooong time. Just found it on I'm sure you've seen it, otherwise go check it out. It's hilarious and definitely one of my favorites!
