In this Oscar®-winning animated short, Ralph's day gets off to a bad start when he dismisses his wife's orders to clear the snow from the front walk. When he comes home and finds the mailman dead on his front stairs, Ralph attempts a massive cover-up with disastrous results. One dead mailman leads to a case of mistaken identity, a runaway bride, and a very confused coroner. Life starts looking up for Ralph once he decides to stop worrying about it all.

    Still one of my all time favorites, a superb piece of visual storytelling. However, one observation just struck me: why does he remove the mailman's underwear? Or was he not wearing any to begin with? Ah well...

    One of my all-time favourite animation films! Used to study it with my high school media class years ago. It never gets old!
