“The Box” (1967)

While this is a cute, mostly entertaining little short, I fail to understand why exactly this short was worthy of an Academy Award. The animation is very 1960s (I don’t really have any other way to describe it), and the plot is very simple and straightforward, with an actually decent twist at the end. Also, the pacing is kind of disjointed, as it takes a little bit too long to establish the premise. It’s decent, and highly watchable, but it’s not something that you’ll keep coming back to either.
