The Big Snit

The Big Snit is an Oscar nominated NFB animated film by Richard Condie from 1985 that takes an interesting approach to the topic of nuclear war breaking out in the middle of a domestic dispute over a game of Scrabble.

“Why are you always shaking your eyes?!” he asks, when she complains that he saws too much, after watching his favourite show “Sawing For Teens”. He reduces her to tears and then remembers the good times, and they make up.

The poor cat, who gets into trouble along the way, has had enough and wants out. As the door is opened to let him go, the nuclear chaos from outside creates a wave of peace over them and so they decide it would be nice to finish the game. That is The Big Snit. Classic Canadian animation as social commentary…enjoy!
