Dave and Ava Nursery Rhymes now on YouTube

Dave and Ava Nursery Rhymes isn't a Canadian production, but that doesn't mean they don't enjoy Canadian animated content. When asked what Canadian animation they are most drawn to they responded by saying:

"We find inspiration in lots of animation art produced in Canada! Frédéric Back is just one of many animators that we love. His short film Crac is pure joy! It's hard to define what exactly makes it so charming - maybe it is lack of dialogues, or expressionistic drawing style with plenty of nice details, or maybe that it's fun to see the world through the eyes of a wheelchair!"
