Bill Plympton

ShortsHD, the network dedicated to short films, recently broadcast the world premiere of "Bill Plympton Restores McCay's 'The Flying House,'" a documentary short about how Plympton and his team are working to restore one of the earliest animations by the father of animation, Winsor McCay -- his classic 1921 short film "The Flying House."

ShortsHD is re-airing the film tomorrow, the night of August 2, at 12:30 am, and the following night at 1 am. In the exclusive clip below, Plympton and Matthew Modine, who voices the short, discuss McCay's talent as an animator and the charm of "The Flying House."
