Oh man, can't wait to see this all the way through. Amazed at how focused the acting and movement is in this small chunk of the film.

Watch the hands and body in between frames 578 to 590ish. The way he stays so still so your eyes focus on the hand moving over to grab the hat, then that hand moves very little while his other moves under and up to do the abracadabra bit before he reaches in the hat again. Your eyes stay focused exactly where the animator wants you to. No superfluous movement...genius!

The whole short is really well animated (of course), definitely one of the better ones.
