the National Film Board of Canada created some real animation gold back in the day.
I remember these cartoons so fondly that I have been searching for them since they stopped airing on saturday mornings on the good old Canadian Broadcast Corporation, and FINALLY here they are! For those of you from Canada, these may be a little slice of childhood.
For anyone else, this is a little insight into what we grew up with.

The Log Driver's Waltz

I even sufficed with having a bad midi of this song when I couldn't find a real version of it. Now don't go thinking this means I frequently saw log drivers on the north saskatchewan river, even when I was born this was a rather historical little ditty.

The Cat Came Back

I can always remember the refrain of this (it's not exactly hard) so it turned into one of those annoying repetitive songs kids sing on field trip buses. I saw this in a museum after it stopped airing, and I've been looking for a copy ever since.

Black Fly

Phnelt remembers this one, but I don't think I ever saw it. Anyone else remember it? Maybe its just because I was an Albertan.

Also, any non-Canadians should check out some molson Canadian commercials on you-tube, classic.
