Well Happy New Year! We start the year off with an Academy Award winning cartoon featuring Donald Duck from 1943. In fact, Der Fuehrer’s Face is Donald’s ONLY Oscar, to date.

Chuck Jones made a lot of memorable films. But the best may not have starred a Rabbit, a fleet-footed desert bird, or a martian, or even the Grinch… it may have only featured a couple simple geometric shapes.

A couple days ago, I panned Chicken Little in CotD as the worst Disney feature animated film ever; this in NOT that Chicken Little. This one was directed by Clyde Geronimi, and produced in 1943. This one was a short.
