'“I got stuck at 9. I wanted to include ‘Mars and Beyond’, a 53-minute-long 1957 science TV program, heavy with animation by Ward Kimball, but it was too short for your rules. And Jason and the Argonauts isn’t entirely animated, but the animation is kinda the only reason people watch it.”

“In actual fact all my favorite animated films are shorts. However, these films impressed me, not for the animation craft, which I couldn’t care less about, but for the uniqueness of the director’s vision and the originality of the ideas, storytelling and design.”
