Why do we hurt those that we love? “Quimby the Mouse”


Quimby The Mouse from This American Life on Vimeo.

I love this fun little video by cartoonist Chris Ware and I think you will too. Ware provided the drawings and story.The animation was done by John Kuramoto and the catchy music is “Eugene” by Andrew Bird.
