Five Furry Animation Shorts You Should Check Out
by Pup Matthias
Howdy Fluffer Nutters. Hope life is treating you well. Did you like Zootopia? Of course not. You loved it! I bet you have the blu-ray and have watched it ten times over one weekend. I feel Animation is the true place anthro animals thrive. Whenever my mind reads a Furry story it paints it like a cartoon. It’s possible to do it in live action, but unless you have an amazing make up team, it rarely works as well. Although since animation is so time consuming it’s not something you find too often. But when you find ones that do it well, it can be so much fun.
So that’s why we have this. A combination of five Furry (whether they want to be call that or not) Animation Shorts that I wish to share with you guys. You may already be familiar with them, or seeing them for the first time. The only thing they have in common is they are all awesome. So lets begin.
A Fox In Space
I’m sure most of you have already seen this, but I cannot stress how amazing this animated series is even though it only has one episode. Created by Matthew Gafford, he has taken the basics of Star Fox and mixed it with a combination of late 70’s/ early 80’s animation of Fantastic Planet, Heavy Metal, and Filmation cartoons. I can’t wait to see what they have planned for the series down the line, but I’m positive it will be amazing.
Thatch & Dial
Another show that just debuted, this one doesn’t have much animation. In fact, it’s all still images, but what it has is great voice talent, music, and a tale about the power of music. It’s still kinda hard to know where the series will go – it just focuses on how our two heroes, Thatch and Dial, come together – but it plays out like a classic fantasy story. Check it out for yourself and let me know what you think.
I think that’s the title, but I have no idea. This is a completely Japanese production with no subtitles, but you can gain enough with what the story is just by the actions that happen within it. If anyone knows what they’re saying, please caption this. It wouldn’t hurt to know what a bunch of feudal furry firefighters are saying, but it’s still a touching story and yes, by the name of the title, there is some homo content. Nothing graphic, but… oh just watch for yourself. It’s anime furries. You’ll love it.
I’m not going to say anything. This was a thesis short, an old school YouTube video, and if you’ve never seen it then I just have one word: tissues.
I’m going to end this with a sweet look at three friends wondering if they made the right choices in their life, that happen to be about dogs. It’s another college film, but one that I’m sure will speak to many whom sometime wonder if they have made the right choice.
And there you go. I hope you enjoyed. I might do another one of these if I find more worth sharing. If you know any, then leave a comment below. Art should be shared as much as possible. You never know what will speak to you. Till then Fluffer Nutters. Remember to stay awesome, stay amazing, stay you.
