Fantastic! I've spent the whole week recommending this wonderful animation movie since I found about it last week.

You should also check out this one:

Special thanks to Cybernetic Nomad. I had seen small bits of "Jasper Morello" a year or so ago but I was not aware that the filmakers had released the full movie on Youtube until Cybernetic dropped me a line. Thanks again!

Koldo - I'll go check it out right now. Thanks for the tip.

WOW--the animator for World War is messing with some tropes about as safe as nuclear weaponry. Notice the Rising Sun decal on the tank-bot? The explicit connection to Hiroshima? The noble, nimble American bot delivering a nuclear weapon to a Japanese city? WTF.

Anyone know when/if the rest of the Jasper Morello shorts are coming out?

I first saw Jasper Morello at the Ottawa Animation Festival in 2005 and have been looking for more ever since. It was also clear to me that Irene would like this film and I couldn't pass up letting her know about the distributor's release of it on Youtube

There is mention of other films on the web site (, but none of them seem to have been released yet. I'm also anxiously waiting for a North American DVD release (no news yet, but I'm keeping my hopes up)
