Wonderful Animation Short Film That Don’t Fail To Make One Smile…

Animation short film began in the early age of animation, in fact it can be said that it’s where the birth of animation happened. Since our childhood we love animated objects on screens and they become our friends as we grow up. Animated characters become out heroes or villains, someone we look up to or someone we don’t want to be. We would argue with anyone who says otherwise.

As busy adults we break away from our childhood love, we start thinking I am a grown up now and watching these movies is childish. Nothing is sadder than that. Our daily jobs, personal chores keep us so busy we keep putting off the movies and books for later on. Yet, there are times when we need a hearty laugh or something to ponder on. So, here’s my top favorite short animation movies for those who are too busy for a full movie.

Time Spend Enjoying Is Not Waste Of Time

Time spend enjoying is not a waste of time. So easy to say, so difficult to follow and even difficult to instill in your life. After all, our time on Earth is limited (If we have more time elsewhere is still under very secret scientific debate). So where was I? Aah yes! time and enjoyment and guilt, where do I even begin?
