This animated short film from legendary animation director Chuck Jones is based on a Norton Juster book. A straight line has fallen passionately in love with a dot, who dislikes the line's dull, rigid and conventional nature. She is much more enamored of the wild squiggle that seems to represent freedom. In the hopes of attracting her attention, the line manages to contort himself, first into an angle, and then into a variety of different shapes. The dot must make a choice between the line and the squiggle and comes to a surprising conclusion about who makes the better partner.
