Closed Mondays – Animated Short

Closed Mondays is a favorite movie short that I first saw in high school. My art teacher showed us a 16mm copy of it years ago in the late 1980’s. Will Vinton and Bob Gardiner made it in 1974 and it won the Academy Award for Animated Short Film that same year. The movie is just as delightful today as it was when I saw first saw it in class.
