The Dot and the Line: A Romance in Lower Mathematics

on February 1st, 2012

Produced by legendary Chuck Jones, this little film about the love between a freedom-loving (female) dot and a dependable (male) line is a treasure of sprightly language and delightful visuals.

It is enchanting, charming, witty – everything one could expect from a master of animation who was responsible for creating such cultural icons as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Wile E. Coyote and Roadrunner. And incidentally, The Dot and the Line won the 1965 Oscar for Best Animated Short movie.

My favourite line?

“From whichever angle he looked at her, she was perfect”.

And the morale?

“To the vector belong the spoils”.

Genius.
