animated short

Bizarro BastardNerd am here show you old animated Superman long.

OK, that’s enough of that. Bizarro typing am making my head hurt. Rob Pratt is back at it again taking on one of his childhood loves and translating it into an animated short that will wow you as well as charm your socks off.

This second short (The first short is below to take a look at as well) also harkens back to the Max Fleischer Studio’s original animated Superman serials that ran in theaters from 1941 – 1943.

The Adventures of Superboy actor John Newton is back playing both Superman and Bizarro this time. Check out the video below for the short and some interesting tidbits like how they chose to record Bizarro’s single line of dialogue backwards!

What do you think, does this deserve a longer treatment? This Nerdbastard would love to see a full version DVD in this style done.


Community is everywhere right now and it couldn’t make me happier. The show everyone feared would never return now seems to be well on their way to six seasons and a movie. You hear that!? Movie. Now. Please. Thanks.

Yesterday we shared part one of the mini-mini-series of animated shorts, “Abed’s Master Key“, and today we’re back with part two!

Called that Lord of the Rings analogy.

Giving Brita the key is such a terrible, terrible idea. Can’t wait to see what hilarious results come of it. Also, was Jeff even if this short? He must be really upset about losing the study group table. Or, his alter ego, Joel McHale was too busy being awesome on The Soup, where he and Brita’s other self, Gillan Jacobs shared an all new trailer for Community‘s return.

Remember, March 15th at 8pm on NBC. Watch it live so Community can win all the ratings!

Electroshock – The Little Hero That . . . Couldn’t.

 Electroshock is the French animated short directed by Hugo JACKSON, Pascal CHANDELIER, Valentin MICHEL, Bastien MORTELECQUE and Elliot MAREN,
with the voices of Christophe LEMOINE, Ariane AGGIAGE, Michel VIGNE, Laetitia BARBARA, Philipe PEYTHIEU and Véronique AUGEREAU, and music by Thierry JAOUL, Jose VICENTE and Hugo JACKSON.

This Nerdbastard thinks you’ll like this little short. It has a sparkling sense of humor and takes a lighter side look at becoming a superhero . . . and living with the after effects.

Taek a look and let us know what you think in the comments section below.


ELECTROSHOCK – ESMA 2011 from Electroshock-movie on Vimeo.

This re-telling of Shaun of the Dead is epic beyond proportions. The 60 second recap utilizes the style of Bryan O’Malley, the artist for the comic book, Scott Pilgrim. Edgar Wright, director of Shaun of the Dead (as well as Spaced, Hot Fuzz, which both have little nods in the short) also directed Scott Pilgrim vs The World when it was brought to the big screen. Is the epic-ness sinking in yet!?

Wright shared this clip recently on his blog. Nothing better than having you’re work aknowledged by someone of great influence for you, huh? Philip Askins, the short’s animater, must be proud. You can visit his site to check out more of his animation, much of with a touch of O’Malley’s style.

There must be a continuation of this mashing of styles. We need a Hot Fuzz animated short, a Spaced animated short. The infuence of  Wright’s quick cuts and O’Malley’s pop art graphics make for something wonderful to watch.
