One of may favourite animators Bill Plympton has had an Oscar nomination. Bill’s short film “Guard Dog” is one of 10 films on the “short list” for consideration. You might remember the Nic Nac ads from the early nineties, but his films are far funnier – the violent comedy of Tom and Jerry, but drawn in pencil. My favourite is ‘I married a strange person’ about I guy who gets hit buy a satellite and suddenly is able to bring his thoughts to life – very funny stuff if you have a crude sense of homour!
