M.C.Bird by AxleGrease-75 M.C.Bird by AxleGrease-75
This character is one of my all time favourite Disney animated shorts "It's Tough to be a Bird"
When I first saw part of that short, I was blown away
I just wish they put it back on YouTube

It's a little outdated (apparently maniraptors are a kind of fish O.o ), but that is indeed one of my favorite shorts. In fact, I've got a soft spot for all the "edutainent" shorts Disney made back then ("Toot, Whistle, Plunk, Boom" ect.)

Wow, poor bird. I wish for the life of me I could remember if I've ever seen said cartoon. Your pic screams to me that I have but I really can't remember it. They should put it back on youtube so I can check it out. :nod:

This definately looks like a 'toon I'd enjoy, and I'm not really into Disney stuff. Like this drawing, looks funny.

Obviously, it must be tough! BTW, did Terry Gilliam really work on that cartoon? :wow:

Yeah, y'know, come to think of it, parts of it did kinda have a Monty Python look to them. I'd never thought about it 'til just now.

Technically, this cartoon came out around the time Terry Gilliam would've already been started working on Monty Python anyway, don't think he ever worked for Disney anyway then.

Oh man, that short at times reminded me of Monty Python at points!

Funny & educational, that was a great short!

Yeah, I agree, I think one of the animators worked on that short later worked on the monty python series

You mean Terry Gilliam? That's the guy who animates for Monty Python.

By the way, I saw your "BloatTOONS: Tiff" pic, & I just wonder why you chose to do her...
