A short film following the misadventures of a red pair of legs. A description any more detailed than that would be doing the film a disservice. Just watch it and enjoy!

Kick Me was released in 1975 and was nominated for an Best Animated Short Film Academy Award in 1976. It was later included in the 1977 anthology film "Fantastic Animation Festival", but was left off the home video release. I've been told this aired often on Nickelodeon in the '80s. Special thanks to the folks at Cartoon Brew for introducing me to this charming, weird little film!
Other segments from Fantastic Animation Festival have been uploaded here and there on YouTube. I may post more segments (ones that other folks haven't) in the coming months. If you have a segment you really want to see, ask me nicely and I may oblige. On the other hand, you could just download the whole movie and watch it as often as you like, which is what I did (see link below).
