You’ll find some solid historical background, a comparison between the work of Walt Disney and Hayao Miyazaki, a discussion of what sets Pixar apart from the rest of computer animation, an assessment of South Park‘s 10 controversial years on the air, and even a piece on Don Hertzfeldt, the twisted fellow behind such bizarre shorts as “Rejected,” “Genre,” and “Ah, L’amour.”
