Hey, Mr. Coat, I noticed that one of the characters in the fire safety ad (I think you said it was called "Hot Stuff") sounds like Fritz from "Fritz the Cat". Is he voiced by the same actor? Mr. Coat: Skip Hinnant provided the voice of Fritz the Cat. I don't recall him ever providing voice-work for the NFB.

Cartoon Network's "O Canada" was what got me exposed to some of the NFB's library. It'd be nice if CN licensed these shorts again; a lot of them are very unique.

Well this is awkward how I just made a video on the same week sort of bashing Canadian cartoons. I remember an old Cartoon Network show called "O Canada" from late 90s early 2000s. I think I remember seeing some of these shorts on there. The wiggly animation and subject matter sort of frightened me.

Another good short was called "Get A Job". It's about an dog character trying to get a job, as the short gives us the info on how to properly get a job, in a musical-esque style, using various 50s style songs. The animation tries to go with the signature style of Bob Clampett, of WB fame. And, in my opinion, it was well made.
