The National Film Board of Canada has put 50 of their brilliant animated short films on line for free viewing. The collection spans 60 years and includes Norman Mclaren's groundbreaking experimental films from the 1950s and some of the most hilarious cartoons ever created (personal favorite, Richard Condie's The Big Snit). The collection includes several Oscar nominated shorts, and it's a good demonstration of why the NFB has a global rep for nurturing brilliant animation.
