20th Century Fox released the Oscar nominated short film that starred Maggie SimpsonÂ of The Simpsons in “The Longest Daycare” on YouTube. The four and a half minute animated short film that was released prior to the start of last years Ice Age: Continental Drift has been a standout of a short film but fell short on Sunday to the Disney animated short, “Paperman“, Â that took the trophy in the best animated short category.
In the short “The Longest Daycare“, Maggie Simpson spends a day at the Ayn Rand Daycare Center where she is diagnosed at an average intelligence level. Longing to be grouped with the gifted children, Maggie finds her destiny by rescuing a lonely cocoon from Baby Gerald, who is busy smooshing butterflies.
The short was directed byÂ The SimpsonsÂ veteran David Silverman and can be viewed below.
