The Dot and The Line
I just bought this book yesterday, after looking off and on for the past 15 or 20 years. I had a copy when I was a kid, and fondly remember the animated special, directed by Chuck Jones. While the book is easily available, if you care to click and buy, you cannot for love or money buy the animated special by itself. However, a pointer from the Math Fiction website mentioned that a recent re-relase of an old Doris Day movie has this short included as a special feature.
So I go digging and find "The Glass Bottom Boat (1966)" at Amazon for $11 or so. They even mention in the DVD features section that it includes the "Oscar-winning cartoon The Dot and the Line"
How cool. They should reverse the text - Oscar-winning cartoon The Dot and the Line, includes a free Doris Day movie. :-)
To the vector belong the spoils!
