What is everyone's favourite animation?

I think the funniest ones are the two strongmen dancing in the nightclub in episode 9, Conrad Poohs and his Dancing Teeth, the lavatorial interruptions in 'The Royal Philarmonic Goes to the Bathroom' and the Killer Cars.

BTW, little known is that Gilliam was a great admirer of the Polish-born animator Walerian Borowczyk. When I first saw some of Borowczyk's shorts, from the late 50s and 60s, I was struck by the resemblance to Gilliam's stuff - particularly the deliberately crude use of cut-outs, the random violence and the fascination with Victoriana, pipes and old machinery. Gilliam's genius was seeing that this kind of thing could be funny!

How come I'm the only one besides you who seems to have a favorite animation?

You're no fun anymore!

The Killer Pram, the old lady tripping up the bus, the dancing Birth of Venus and Conrad Pooh's Dancing Teeth.

Although lets face it they're all pretty good.

I dont know about you guys, and no offence to terry gilliam, but i usually find myself reaching for the fast forward button during the animations.
The only one i actually like, is the autumn leaves from meaning of life. Thats hilarious!

i think most of the animations are good.

another thing you have to take in account is the process of making an animation. it must be tedious, and it makes me respect anyone who's created animations, sans macromedia flash animations.
