I was sitting around with a couple of people and we got to chatting about classic Canadian Cartoons from the NFB. We ended up watching not so good versions off Youtube on my tablet. A bit of research on the National Film Board of Canada webiste turned up these beautiful versions.
The Cat Came Back made by Cordell Baker in 1988.
This hilarious Oscar®-nominated animation is based on the century-old folk song of the same name. Old Mr. Johnson makes increasingly manic attempts to rid himself of a little yellow cat that just won't stay away... Also won the 1989 Genie Award for best animated short film.

The Log Drivers Waltz made by John Weldon in 1979
This lighthearted, animated short is based on the song "The Log Driver's Waltz" by Wade Hemsworth. Easily one of the most often-requested films in the NFB collection, Kate and Anna McGarrigle sing along to the tale of a young girl who loves to dance and chooses to marry a log driver over his more well-to-do competitor. Driving logs down the river has made the young man the best dancing partner to be found. (from http://www.nfb.ca/film/log_drivers_waltz/ )
