We've watched the Oscar-nominated animated shorts and they are excellent. Every year parents ask us what they're rated, so before you ask: they're not rated, but if they were, they'd be a PG (so says our distributor). Some of them are straight out of a children's book, others address more adult themes of alienation, existential dread, neuroses, and sexy cows and courtesan chickens. Bottom line: there's no graphic sex or violence.
The live-action shorts, on the other hand, would be rated R.
Feral: my pick for best animated short.
