Saturday Morning Cartoons: “Runaway” and “My Friend is a Cloud”

Runaway: Another brilliantly comic movie from Cordell Barker. “Happy passengers are having a great time on a crowded train, oblivious to the unknown fate that awaits them around the bend. The ensuing crisis leads to a class struggle that is as amusing as it is merciless. Naturally there are victims, but in the end everyone is equal.” (9:10 minutes)

My Friend is a Cloud: A sweet and lonely dreamscape of pianos, puppies, and robots on a floating city. (4:30 minutes)
