First off this was made for NATA 2012 Novice Round. 32 animators had 25 days to create a cartoon based around the theme "the elephant in the room".
Ok, I did this one in around 22 days. After receiving the theme for this round I was having some trouble thinking of a good idea. Should I go with the literal meaning or the expression? I thought of brief ideas for each scenario, but I decided to go with a little bit of both (obviously more literal than idiomatic, but there's still a small ounce of the expression in there).
Um, yeah, so I hope the plot makes sense. Let me know if it doesn't. Music by Kevin MacLeod, and me! (whaaaaat?) Yeah I made a song so that's cool. And sound effects form freesound.org.
