Munro, was the 1961 winner of the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film.

Adapted by animator Gene Deitch and cartoonist Jules Feffier from his original story, Monro tells the tale of a four year old boy who after being drafted into the US Army has a very hard time convincing anyone that he is in fact, only four.

Beautifully animated by Deitch, and with great narration by Howard Morris, Feffier's story is at times poignant, sometimes absurd, but always funny and fifty years on still as meaningful as the day it was written.
