Quimby The Mouse

The reason I like this video so much is the perfect synergy of music, drawings, and animation. The song is so perfectly synchronized with the animation and the story, that they make each other better than they would be on their own. There’s something natural about cartoons as art, because their simplicity makes them a natural metaphor, something already open to interpretation. And still they can be so expressive. Also, well, I’m a sucker for endings and this is a great one.

10 points for This American Life and 30 points each to Chris Ware, Andrew Bird, and John Kuramoto.
