Synopsis:

In a post-apocalyptic wasteland, a scruffy man wanders the desert in his junky car. In this world, anything desired can be attained by pushing buttons on a special kind of vending machine. The man is able to get new clothes, a snappy new car, water galore, new "pets" to accompany him on his journey, and even an unusual hair cut; but all he really wants is the most important thing of all: a new Earth…

Man and Whale

Man and Whale
  • TV Special (1 ep x 2 min)
  • 2007

An old man who is the headmaster of a primary school bordering the ocean paints a picture of a whale, an animal he had seen so often off the coast when he was a boy and now sees all too seldom. He reminisces about his youth, when he simply considered whales a source of food, though he vividly remembers a time when a whale was speared by a whaling ship. He knew of no other way to treat whales then. But that day he sees the first whale he has done in a long time - and it is beached against the rocks. He races out of the school to come to the whale's aid...

While Man and Whale is about saving whales and Push is a social satire on consumerism and nuclear warfare, in essence they both are nice shorts about preserving our planet that come from very talented animators - Koji Yamamura and Osamu Tezuka respectively. So, if you're interested in this topic or simply have 5 minutes to spare, check them both.

Memory

Memory
  • Movie (1 ep x 5 min)
  • 1964

The memory works in mysterious ways. From stereotypes that help us to remember people, to what is left of the day we broke up, or even to what other creatures will remember of humans after our race is extinguished, the abstract comments of the narrator are illustrated in a literal way by the animation - resulting in holy toilet cities and other cyclopean creatures.

Both of these are quirky shorts by Osamu Tezuka, if you're interested in the work of teh God of Manga, then it's well worth checking both of these out.

Shizuku

Shizuku
  • Movie (1 ep x 4 min)
  • 1965

A man is on a raft. He has spent a long time at sea, desperate for some drinkable water. Luckily, some drops of the precious liquid are stuck on his sail, and will provide him with just what he needs. Or rather, it would do so if he wasn't so unlucky: from naughty birds to harassing winds, everything stands in the way between him and his drink. Will he survive until he reaches land?

These two Osamu Tezuka shorts both share a similar animation style and quirky sense of humour. Since neither is really that long, if you liked one, give the other a go.

Speed

Speed
  • Movie (1 ep x 6 min)
  • 1980

The rise of man has been filled with toils and adventures, from learning to build fire to turning to religion, from going into space to inventing feature films and beyond. Though each space flight seems to result in a sharp jab in the eye for the moon, there's still plenty to explore in the path of human history. Whether it’s roasting pigs or cooking ramen on the stove, experience the journey of a man in a high speed society!

Speed and Push are different, but still similair, in both the drawingstyle, which is typical for a lot of 80's animation, and the enviromental theme. Speed tells about how the society evolved into what it is today, focusing on the past. Push is about what the society and Earth could be if humankind continues it's massive consumption and pollution, depicting the future. Both also involve comedy and scifi, so for fans of those genres, I'd recommend these.
