    "The Animation Show" is a collection of animated shorts that was originally released as a US tour by Don Hertzfeldt and Mike Judge. Here's what thedigitalbits.com has to say about the set:



    The shorts found on the disc is as follows:

    Welcome to The Show/Intermission in the Third Dimension/The End of the Show and Billy's Balloon, by Don Hertzfeldt
    Mt. Head (Atama Yama), by Koji Yamamura
    The Brother/Cousin/Uncle-trilogy, by Adam Elliot
    Parking, by Bill Plympton
    The Adventures of Ricardo, by Corky Quakenbush
    Moving Illustrations of Machines, by Jeremy Solterbeck
    La Course a L'Abime, by Georges Schwizgebel
    The Cathedral (Katedra), by Tomek Baginski
    Fifty Percent Grey, by Ruari Robinson
    Early Pencil Tests and other Experiments, by Mike Judge
    Aria, by Pjotr Sapegin
    Bathtime in Clerkenwell, by Aleksey Budovskiy
    The Rocks (Das Rad), by Chris Stenner, Arvid Uibel and Heidi Wittlinger

    I'm really looking forward to this set, hope it'll arrive very shortly.

    I saw this in a "theater" (read: college lecture hall). It is very good. the content is quite diverse, and some of it I just didn't 'get.'(Adventures of Ricardo) If you are a fan of independant animation, then you owe it to yourself to pick this up. You have to go to The Animation Show's website if you want it.

    I'm a little dissapointed that not ALL of the shorts from the theatrical tour are on the DVD ("Mars and Beyond segment" and "Ident") but the set is never the less very good.

    The "Mars and Beyond" was only an excerpt. The full one is 30 minutes and includes other planets and such.

    It is in the new Tomorrowland DVD set coming out this month!

    I think this set is also available from Amazon -- at least I saw it there yesterday, if I am not mistaken.

    It's true, the set will also be available from Amazon. Personally, I think the DVD is worth getting alone for the new Hertzfeldt shorts, plus of course the absolutely wonderful "Billy's Balloon". Morbid humor at it's best! [​IMG]
