Originally intended as an entry into the 11th Twenty-Four Hour Animation Contest, The Meek and the Bold ultimately took too long to make in the 24-hour period. I decided I would rather not enter THAC and produce a quality film, instead of rush a half-baked film into the contest. About 75% of the film was animated during the 24-hour THAC period, and the rest was done about a week later.
