How many of you as a kid loved The Rocketeer? I know I did. I remember as a kid, my folks and I went to Wal-Mart and I saw the VHS of Rocketeer on the shelf. I grabbed it and wouldn’t let go until we got it. I ended up causing quite a ruckus over this flick. Anyway, I know every fan of The Rocketeer desperately want a sequel (I think the closest we’ll ever come to that is Captain America). And while this isn’t the sequel, it should be. Animator John Banana created this loving tribute to the movie in this Pixar-inspired short.

How awesome would a serial series of Rocketeer be with this guy’s animation? Discuss in the comments!
