This animated short follows an unwanted baby who is passed from house to house until he is taken in and cared for by two homeless men. The film is the Canadian contribution to an hour-long feature film celebrating UNESCO's Year of the Child (1979). It illustrates one of the ten principles of the Declaration of Children's Rights: every child is entitled to a name and a nationality. The film took home an Oscar® for Best Animated Short Film.

    Brilliant. I saw this one in elementary school, back when the teacher would thread up a projector and us kids would fight over who got to shut the blinds. The whole class probably liked it then, and this little gem will surely withstand the test of time.
