Friday Night Shorts: NFB

I didn't realize the Canadian National Film Board makes available some of their famous cartoon shorts online. For free. I found a few of my faves here:

Getting Started
A hilarious look at procrastination.

"And the cat came back the very next, we thought he was a gonner but the cat came back the very next day" ... as cute as it sounds, it's probably not for the real wee ones.

This one is quirky-weird and I absolutely love it.

And classic Canadiana "The Sweater" ...

I love you NFB. Never go away.

>>Friday night is movie night in our house and we like to start with a good short or two. To see others we recommend check out some previous posts here.

When I was 6 years old, my Dad worked for the CNFB, I thought he had the coolest job in the world. I used to go into work with him (I think it was on weekends), and I could stroll up and down all the floor-to-ceiling aisles filled with film cannisters and pick my favourite cartoons and then sit in my own private screening room and watch them ad infinitum. Even at 6 I knew this was a unique experience.

I have no memory of knowing that your daddy worked there! What a wonderful story. I love it.

So glad you found us. We've got tons of content for kids, including a cartoon playlist and a whole site with games for kids.

Also, you can resize the video player when you embed our films so that they don't break your template.
