“Micro Loup” by Richard McGuire

“Micro Loup” is a 2003 animated short by Richard McGuire. It’s about a microscopic wolf, with obvious (and hilarious) nods to King Kong, and it’s the best 7 minutes you’ll have all day.

McGuire’s entry in the Peur(s) du Noirs animated horror short anthology film is one of my all-time favorite shorts, so try to find that on DVD. You can also check out a clip from it, which is only the tip of the iceberg of the short’s full awesomeness, on McGuire’s Vimeo page.

“More” by Mark Osborne

I just stumbled across “More,” a 1998 animated short by Mark Osborne, who went on to co-direct Kung Fu Panda for Dreamworks (and did a terrific job at that, I should add). I always find it interesting to see early work by directors — especially animators — but the utterly different tone on display here made this a great surprise. It’s only six minutes, so give it a look.
