Your Friend the Rat (2007)

Unlike Lifted, a which accompanied Ratatouille's cinematic release, Your Friend the Rat is an educational short available on the Ratatouille DVD. What makes it special is not the characters, who are Remy and Emile from Ratatouille; not the story or the idea; certainly not the song. What makes it special is the styles that are used. It's all a mix of what seems like very animated style in the book, including silent movie, video game, 3D, stock footage, photos, you name it, even a cool messing around with disclaimers. There's no story and the history doesn't really surprise much but the style is intoxicating.
