Styx Thanks You, Kunio Kato!

Courtesy of CartoonBrew, here's the short that won Best Animated Short at the Oscars this year, "The House of Small Cubes (La Maison en Petits Cubes)". If you didn't get the opportunity to see it beforehand, now you can judge for yourself if it should have won. Regardless, I still think Kunio Kato's speech was adorable - thanking his pencil and then ending with "Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto" - genius! And now that song is stuck in my head.

I'm going to repost the short here since they're usually difficult to find, and keep getting removed - so watch quickly while it's still available, and then rent the Academy Awards Animated Shorts DVD when it finally comes out! It's in two parts as found on YouTube, but if you want to see the speech, CartoonBrew's got it in their post.

And for those of you who now need to hear the song/see the video, here's Styx for you
