Hailing from Halifax, NS, Canadian animator Ed Beals is an interesting figure, as demonstrated by the animation "Thing in my Hat", a silly sing-along-song he wrote based on a dream he had.
Ed also had to say this about the work:
"Great hat web site! I was drawn here by your Hats in Art History section. I thought you might enjoy this little animated short I made about a dream I had. It's called Thing in my Hat."
