100 Greatest Oscar Nominated Animated Shorts (100 movies items)

"Frederick Back, one of the great animators of the modern era, submitted another masterpiece this year in the half hour 'The Man Who Planted Trees'. The story of a shepherd who single-handedly reforests a desolate valley, 'The Man Who Planted Trees' is a visual feast of smooth, incredible hand-rendered animation and it is perfectly married to the touching story to create one of the most famous Oscar winning animations of the 80s."

Best Animated Short - Winners and My Choices (82 movies items)

"WINNER: The Man Who Planted Trees Other nominees: George and Rosemary Your Face MY CHOICE: 'The Man Who Planted Trees'. This was another fantastic year for the category. Alison Snowden was back, teaming up with David Fine for the sweetly simple love story 'George and Rosemary', about an elderly man who is trying to pluck up the courage to ask out the woman across the street. The film has a forceful charm and captivating attention to detail. Far from sweet but no less remarkable is Bill Plymp"
