One of Last Year’s Best Animated Shorts Is Finally Online for Free

The_Missing_Scarf_still

This Oscar-shortlisted animated short—probably my favorite of all last year’s contenders—begins in a manner familiar from many children’s fables: An anthropomorphic animal goes on a search for something precious to him, and helps many other cuddly creatures he encounters along the way.

But where it twists and turns from there is too good to spoil, and—with its wonderfully imagined computer animation and narration from George Takei—you really need to see it for yourself.
