To encounter the work of Grant Munro is to discover an artist of inimitable talent and charm. A combination of Buster Keaton, Chuck Jones, Gene Kelly and Felix the Cat, Munro is truly one of a kind. He collaborated with legendary animator Norman McLaren on some of their best-known work, including the amazing pixilated masterpiece Neighbours (1953's Oscar(R) winner for Best Short Film). A special treat is two never-completed Munro/McLaren shorts, "Six and Seven Eights" and "On the Farm," along with Munro classics like "Three Blind Mice," "Two Bagatelles," "Christmas Cracker," "Canon," "Toys" and "The Animal Movie." Also included are Munro's hilarious work in live-action films including "The Ballot-o-Maniac," "Ashes of Doom" and "Boo Hoo."
