Mike Judge and Don Hertzfeldt have returned with another collection of incredible animated short films! This program brings together the best work from The Animation Show s 2007 theatrical program and additional groundbreaking shorts 17 in all.

Beavis and Butthead introduction - Mike Judge has his boys intro the program in a one minute quickie

Rabbit (8:14) - a marvelous short done in the style of a childĂs pre-primer reader but with a distinctly adult point of view

City Paradise (5:57) - unusual

Everything Will Be OK (17:00) - drawn with stick figures and using split screen, another weak entry

Collision (2:30) - the most abstract of the shorts, a kaleidoscope of color and music

Astronauts (8:21) - some delightful deadpan humor in the Pixar vein

Carlitopolis (3:30) - a live action/animation split screen blend

No Room for Gerold (4:52) - CGI animal roommates have a falling out

Guide Dog (5:46) - hilarious sequel to PlimptonĂs ˘Guard Dog÷

One D (4:38) - as the title implies, a story told in (mostly) one dimensional lines

Tyger (4:50) - beautifully moody combination of live action puppet work with 2-D animation

Versus (5:37) - another Pixar clone with a nod to Looney Tunes

Learn Self Defense (5:05) - instructional comic animated video with a serious message

Abigail (6:16) - another bold attempt at something different

Shuteye Hotel (7:00) - masterful cartoon noir with a nice twist

Dreams and Desires (9:55) - thick Irish accents & very arresting drawing in this short from multiple points of view

Game Over (1:35) - a clever paean to Atari games like Space Invaders, Frogger, and Pac-Man
