Or… “The Dot and the Line, A Romance in Lower Mathematics”. Absolutely stunning! Once upon a time, there was a sensible straight line, who was hopelessly in love with a dot. I never got to see this in mathematics class, glad I had a look now! :)

Aaww that was pretty!
Classic! Some of those old MGM cartoons are the best…I’m happy that Cartoon Network dug that one out, and you found it.
I worked at a media lab in college that actually had a copy on 16mm, so I had the geeky pleasure of running the film through a projector. One of the reasons that’s so fun is that the dot (the feed reel) becomes a squiggle in the projector and then transforms back into a dot (the uptake reel). Ah, the joys of analog :)
