Why Watch? Because all week long we’ll be featuring short films featuring the gang from Community.
Today’s features the children’s book narration of Chevy Chase.
I desperately wanted to find an embeddable version of the immortal Walk…Don’t Walk from 1968, but alas, the internet has failed me. However, sometimes failure is success in disguise because I was able to find Chase playing the role of storyteller for an animated version of a children’s tale that’s really sweet. It’s a benign counterpoint to his character on Community as instead of being overtly racist and self-centric, he’s talking about how a father and mother decide to cheer up their son by turning him into a pizza.
The animation style is what might happen if a comic strip came to life, and the story’s truly heartwarming.
