Theodore Avraam : I remember watching this on YTV, waiting for "Reboot" or "Are you afraid of the dark?" to start.

Symonds : This is prime vaporwave material right here

Josh Hauta : I remember this video vividly from my childhood! Thanks for uploading.

SmokingSpoon : My favorite. It's the one that marked me most in my childhood. Am I the only one being remembered of FF/Nobuo Uematsu with the soundtrack?

YoRocky : This takes me back to my childhood. :) Gotta love the 90's.

Nick Hentschel : Possibly my favorite segment of the film, this may have been a pastiche, but it somehow creates more of a concrete "setting" than any of the others. I always wanted to learn more about these people who lived in this magical pyramid, surrounded by a desert.

cassidy ladden : God this takes me back. All these tapes had such a huge and wonderful impact on my childhood that I still remember vividly to this day. My father was an Art teacher in Nyack, and he was always bringing home the latest computer art or claymation festivals for me because he knew I'd love them. He's been gone a little less than 3 years but I still feel very close to him whenever I watch these. Love and miss you forever, dad. ⌚️️🌙❤️

Kristin Drover : I remember seeing these on YTV in the wee small hours of the morning. Always thought they were thought-provoking and beautiful! Thx for sharing!

Oxalis : I have a hard time watching this without crying or wanting to cry, haha. Nostalgia at its greatest here, folks.

Diego Neira : This is soooo deep! I love it!

Jesse Johnson : This shit scared me as a kid, the other Short Circutz were good though.

thebikevoid : "We are of the butterfly." I think the main message here is really important, actually.

CaRcypher : I still hum this tune lol

K Korjus : I remember watching this as a kid and being mesmerized by it. My favorite part was at 0:56 with all those weird, cool, faceless beautiful creatures.

Jax184 : I think it's "We are of the butterfly." She said something different in the original version of this video, and in neither case did it fit with her lip movement.

Zaphernater : oh god i remember this from my childhood on YTV in between shows. awesome!

KuroCartoonist : 20 years later and i still don't understand what im watching

TrustyCranberry : 0:58 weirded me out. That blue lady needs her neck checked!

jeve nagi : Wow! I haven't seen this one in at least almost 20 years! I remember particularly loving this one because of its music an weirdness. I dont even feel these shorts are dated at all... they sort of have a timeless abstract quality to them. It was these shorts, Reboot, and some SNES games and Mario 64 that first introduced the world of 3D animation to me, and I guess it was the same for the world in general. What an exciting time to be a kid, and right on the edge of the millennium to boot. I wonder if the current or future generation can experience something that way.

jeffsomer : Awesome. One of the best tapes from 1992

Tom8201 : "Will you hug the butterfly?" Nice, brings back memories.

WNivek : Most of the video in this piece comes from The Little Death, a 1989 cgi short film by Symbolics. (There's a copy of it on youtube, on the VintageCG channel. ) I greatly prefer Jan Hammer's music here over Haze Greenfield's music from the original video.

swiftwolfcoyote : I love this animation so intense

elfin12u : We are of the butterfly.

Jesse : We are of the butterfly.

DoubleCannon2 : Am I the only one who wants this music as an mp3 plus re-mastered and longer! without the we are the butterfly lol. thank you for posting all the YTV Short Circutz. you have no idea how much nostalgic overload im having lol

Daniel Fanshaw : It all makes sense

Seth Caudle : When everyone is high at a party

Damien : What is this? I can't believe I missed this as a kid. I used to love YTV and this would have blown my mind.

MrAntny777 : Is it just me or is this filled with evil symbolism?

HRE : This song has been stuck in my head for nearly two decades.

CovenantOfComedy : chasing realities and other thoughts

Andre00x : My favourite and the best

Jax184 : @roboguy75 He leaps off and transforms into a butterfly. He actually sheds his skin and flies away.

Jax184 : It's nice to know people read video descriptions around here...

Takumi : Holy crap! I have been looking for this for forever! Thank you!

sausageslaps : hard to believe this is over 20 years old


Absolem23 : oh the childhood memories! =,)

Meaghan Edwards : Totally remember this one on YTV. I loved that dog.

Alex -Wilky- Wilson : you know, back in the 90's, this was considered "modern" and "sleek"...

tomaskejr : Jan Hammer - Our Czech Genial Musician!

Daniel Link : Annihilation (Alex Garland, 2018)

Karla T : Watching this in 2018

Artoveli : @BlueSilverStars Ahhhh! Thank you so much for giving me at least a name to follow up on! I hereby vow that I WILL someday track down this clip.

Artoveli : Wow, I thought I'd never see this again! The music's been stuck in my head since I was a kid. Now if I can only track down that similar 3D short with the parrots, eye balls, and dollar bills, and the song that involved the phrase "eye-eye-eye-eye"...

michaelm610 : @jschoolhannah and to finally find it! holy shit...

Amathene : Vaporwave ripped this off basically

vehaoeusnth : we are of the butterfly

R1PT9C0N : i think i saw some of this on the lawnmower man
