Watch: ‘Rooney’s World’ is a Delightful Fall From Kid’s Show Grace

Why Watch? A smart, playful comedy, this short from director Jordan Noel tells the story of a young man who was once the host of a celebrated children’s show. After its cancellation, he finds it hard to let go, but he still has a blossoming romance and a little cartoon elephant helping him rebuild.

The thing is, it might not be normal to see a cartoon elephant when you’re not a child. Especially when that cartoon elephant is pissed at you.

Handled with a ton of heart and a sweet turn from star Jacob York, it’s the kind of short that deserves to be seen by kids of all ages.

What will it cost? Only 20 minutes.
