This is fun! I love it!

You can really get some awesome effects with stop-motion! I'm a total newbie at it and this makes me want to try new stuff. Thanks, Ze!

That reminded me of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=42nkkPCuA0o&feature=related
which must be obligitorily mentioned every time stop-motion is discussed on the internet.

You've got to cut it some slack, since it was made in 1979. And it is right from the Disney playbook and perhaps reveals a bit more of the creator's latent egoism than is tasteful--but still, pretty technically awesome in a pre-CGI world.
