Watch “Special Delivery,” an Oscar-Winning Animated Short (1978)




From the National Film Board of Canada comes the "Special Delivery." Here is how they describe it: "In this Oscar®-winning animated short, Ralph's day gets off to a bad start when he dismisses his wife's orders to clear the snow from the front walk. When he comes home and finds the mailman dead on his front stairs, Ralph attempts a massive cover-up with disastrous results. One dead mailman leads to a case of mistaken identity, a runaway bride, and a very confused coroner. Life starts looking up for Ralph once he decides to stop worrying about it all." A copy of the film can be downloaded here. Many more award-winning films from the National Film Board of Canada can be viewed here.
