Ward Kimball's It's Tough To Be A Bird

Here's another treat...the first 10 or so minutes of It's Tough To Be A Bird.
The film won an Academy Award for Best animated short subject of 1969, one of the few awards that Disney studios let Ward keep for his very own. I got to hold the award for maybe 5 seconds and it was a real thrill. This is absolutely one of my favorite Disney films and it deserves a wider showing. Unfortunately, the TV version for the Wonderful World Of Disney was padded out adding another 25 minutes to the film which made it a little too long to view, however it still has some more clever moments.
