"Destino"

Destino began in 1946 as a collaboration between Walt Disney and the famed surrealist painter Salvador Dalí. A first-hand example of Disney's interest in avant garde and experimental work in animation, Destino was to be awash with Dalí's iconic melting clocks, marching ants and floating eyeballs. However, Destino was not completed at that time. In 2003, it was rediscovered by Walt’s nephew, Roy E. Disney, who took on the challenge of bringing the creation of these two great artists to fruition.
The six-minute short follows the love story of Chronos and the ill-fated love he has for a mortal female. The story continues as the female dances through surreal scenery inspired by Dalí's paintings. There is no dialogue, but the soundtrack features a song by the Mexican composer Armando Dominguez.

"Minoriteam"--so bad and yet so good.


A cartoon about a team of minority superheros, based of racial and ethnic stereotypes, who do battle against the fiendish "white shadow", an organization of villains who are themselves stereotypes of Caucasians. In other words, you probably shouldn't watch this if you are easily offended...lol.
