The Sexy Naked Moon Goddess Contends With a Creepy Peeper

The Sexy Naked Moon Goddess Contends With a Creepy Peeper

Moon Goddess is a very humorous animated short film by Melanie Atwater,  a student at CalArts. The film presents a modern take on the mythological tale of Artemis and Actaeon. Descending from her heavenly perch, the naked goddess is interrupted each evening during her leisurely bath by the heavy panting and malicious grinning of a lecherous peeping-tom watching her from the bushes. So, what’s a poor goddess do?

Well, first she pulls out her bowstring and transforms the nasty creeper into a stag, but that doesn’t work. Luckily, the wily goddess has one or two more tricks up her sleeve. However, no matter what she changes the lurking pervert into, he still makes disgusting gestures and kissing motions in her direction. Finally, the sexy bathing goddess transforms the nasty creeper into something that distracts him from ever bothering her again.

Bless You: Setting the Hungry Cat Amongst the Pigeons

Bless You: Setting the Hungry Cat Amongst the Pigeons

Bless You is a delightfully humorous animated short film by Philip Watts. The little film tells the story of an urban architect, who decides his architectural model needs to be spiced up quite a bit. Bless You ends up being a very cunning mix of traditional animation, tilt-shift photography and something pretty much like Flash. Ultimately, the film is great fun and executed with great panache.

It Was The Night Before Christmas: A Visit from St. Nicholas

It Was The Night Before Christmas: A Visit from St. Nicholas

The Night Before Christmas was originally a 1968 Animated Christmas Television Special, with background music provided by the Norman Luboff Choir.  It was shown regularly for about 10 years as a holiday special, but has since disappeared from television.  The classic holiday animated short film tells the heartwarming true story of how Clement C. Moore came to write the Christmas poem beloved by generations of children, and includes a joyous retelling of the charming A Visit from St. Nicholas.

In the film, Clement Moore goes on a short trip just before Christmas to give a series of lectures at a university, and he promises to get his daughter Charity a storybook about Santa Claus for Christmas while he is away.  Charity develops pneumonia while he’s gone, and the doctor says she might not survive.  When Clement arrives back home, he’s distraught to see his beloved daughter near death.  Making things even worse, he hadn’t found any books about Santa Claus when he went shopping, and even through her fever she’s asking for one.  Feeling that he had broken his promise, he decides to write a story of his own and read it to her; it is the story which became A Visit from St. Nicholas.

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas: Even Miracles Need a Hand!

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas: Even Miracles Need a Hand!

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas is a 1974 animated short film, originally a television Christmas special based on Clement Moore’s famous 1823 poem that opens with this line. For some unexplained reason, all the letters sent to Santa Claus are being returned to the children of Junctionville. It seems that some disenchanted resident of the small town has angered Santa, calling Christmas nothing but “a fraudulent myth!” The skeptical resident turns out to be little mouse Albert, who has to be brought to his senses. The way in which Albert is persuaded to change his tune paves the way for Santa’s jolly return to Junctionville and the joyous finale of this charming animated fable.
