Back when Bravo and A&E actually had arts programming (in the dark ages of the early 1990s before anyone discovered the ickiness of "reality" television competitions), they would occasionally air short films between the longer programs. Wicked cool. I re-found this piece will looking for something else.
It's a Kim Thompson short entitled "All the Great Operas in Ten Minutes". I love this because a) it's animated using paper art and b) it has a body count.
