An example of the close attention to detail in the animation in “Geri’s Game” (1997). Here, Geri carefully adjusts some chess pieces and feels behind him for the chair.

“Saying that animated movies are for children is just as ludicrous as saying that movies in general are for children. This statement isn’t wrong exactly – there are movies, and animated movies, made with children in mind – but it’s failing to take into account the impressive variety of films that have been created through animation.”
