100 Greatest Animated Shorts (100 movies items)

"Bob Godfrey's 'Great' is an animated biopic of Isambard Kingdom Brunel. It not only introduced me to the history of this amazing man, it also introduced me to the animation of Bob Godfrey, whose work I've come to love. 6 great musical numbers are set to various different types of animation which builds up into a condensed but informative biography of Brunel. Songs range from celebrations of Brunel's work to songs about the things he didn't invent (among them the violin, heroin and Golden Shred!)"
