Boundin

This is my favorite animated short of all time. It was created (music and animation), directed, and the voice of the legendary Bud Lucky. Bud Lucky is one of the innovators of hand animation and switched over to computer animation with Pixar and has been with them since Toy Story. He did some work for Sesame Street 30 years ago. You may remember The Ladybug Picnic? That was Bud Lucky. This clip is all Bud Lucky, and it is genius. Great animation and music with a fabulous message. I found it on disc #2 of the Incredibles movie. I am not one to put videos on my blog (the quality is not that great), but I just couldn't help myself. You MUST watch the whole thing! Bring the kids to the computer to watch it too. They will love it! :)

Don't worry, my music will be back soon. I just didn't know how to pause it for the video so I ended up taking it off completely. Oops.
Hope you enjoyed the video!

Hi Bud. I would laugh if I weren't so stinking sad. Thanks for your note and yes I heard it and share your pain. I actually cried when it broke. I'm SO WEAK. There has been full coverage on local stations here (from 9:00Am on). He was such a stellar athelete and an even better human being and role model. WAAAAA is right. WAAAAA.

Hey did you ever read the Deanna Favre book? If not, I highly recommend it. I read it in 2 nights it was so good.

Tonya said...

My kids love that little video almost more then the Incredibles! I agree it is great.

Jenni said...

This is so weird! My husband and I were just trying to remember the name of this short. We've seen it somewhere, but we've never seen the Incredibles, so I can't remember where.

I will definitely let the kids watch it in the morning.

BTW, no more word verification, just for you!

No No No!! The one that shows Jack Jack and Babysitter is the best short!!!

But I love Boundin' too! :)

We loved the video. Harrison couldn't stay out of daddy's face while he was trying to listen to the primary results last night and I called him over to watch it with me. He says, "Sorry, Daddy! Gotta go watch video!"
Daddy wasn't too heartbroken at that moment.

We spent the next 15 minutes watching Pixar videos!

I remember the Ladybug Picnic!!! I have seen Boundin' but couldn't place the voice. You have connected the dots for me and now I know where I heard it before. Have a great day!

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
