The Vine: September 21, 2012
I've been desperately trying to come up with the name of this animated short I saw a while back. I was convinced — CONVINCED — it was Pixar, but after browsing the Pixar shorts wikipedia (God bless the internet), I can't find it. From what I remember, I was younger, possibly in high school or early college (I'm 25 now), and the short featured an old man who was trying to teach a bird to fly. First he's annoyed at the bird, of course, but over the course of the short he begins to help it, and at the very end he launches the bird off some kind of vehicle (a bus or a car) and it flies off. He looks after it fondly as it flies away. Definitely animated, in that sort of specially cartoonized Pixar style — but not Pixar. I remember crying because I'm a huge sap. Help me with the title?
