Long Time Fan! More Please!
Have loved this animation since the 80's "Tounee's of Animation". I miss those films. Every spring in Atlanta it came to town and entertained those of us who loved animation like nothing seen before. I love this "Best of" series. Keep it coming. What about "The Man Who Planted Trees"? Would love to see that one. Thanks Itunes.
Got The Big Snit (love it), but it won't fit on my iPod.
I see it is deleted. Can you guys bring it back as a short film?
