Peace on Earth

In 1939, as the world was about to descend into war, animator Hugh Harman crafted a masterpiece. Harman's cartoon "Peace on Earth" tells the story of mankind's last war, seen through the eyes of cute forest animals. The film earned an Oscar nomination for the best animated short of the year. It also -- astonishingly -- was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Animator Fred Cline has an appreciation of the film and Hugh Harman's obit on his blog.
