This usually consisted of statistical and analytical boredom, cobbled by the sheer brilliance of simple limited animation needed to get the message across. This following number discusses the several methods in making perfect rivet connections that allow for wind resistance.

I wonder if they still have the art stored away somewhere. Pretty good looking stuff for a short done on the cheap.

Lord knows I started getting kinda interested in that blue textured background that takes a serious beating towards the end!

I'm sure there's a dealer out there that'll sell you a colour xerox of that blue textured background.

Probably. If only I'm ever in the need to create generic titles for my movies!
