A devoted and happily-married housewife organises a surprise party on the occasion of her husband's birthday, unbeknownst to her that her dentist spouse is experiencing a sudden mid-life crisis at his office.
This short justifiably won the Academy Award for Animated Short. At turns sad and funny, sweet and cruel and with a marvelous ending, it offers proof that the animated short is still being done well and is still a viable art form. Available on The World's Greatest Animation, anyone who takes animation to their heart and particularly the short form, should have this compilation. This short is just one of many reasons to pick it up. You won't be sorry. This short, by the way, was not made with young children in mind. They may not understand it particularly well.
