Produced by the NFB, Canal+ and Sacrebleu, Comic Strip Chronicles is a collection of shorts that celebrates the strong affinity between two art forms: the comic strip and the animated film. Inspired by moments of everyday life, this quartet of three-minute films showcases the playful imaginations of renowned artists from Quebec (Guy Delisle, Zviane) and France (Aude Picault, Lewis Trondheim, Jean Matthieu Tanguy). The Tooth Every child knows full well that losing a tooth is only the prologue to a magical experience—namely, a night-time visit from the tooth fairy and the gift she leaves behind. So why, in this case, is the tooth fairy a no-show? These are the sorts of questions a father needs to be able to answer for his son… In this brilliantly simple animated short, Quebec cartoonist Guy Delisle brings to the screen the titular parent of his popular series, Le guide du mauvais père (A User’s Guide to Neglectful Parenting), published by Delcourt. Inspired by a common childhood experience, Delisle uses his trademark wry humour to reflect on the vagaries of parenting. A slice of everyday life, courtesy of the Comic Strip Chronicles.
