Best Locally Produced Animated Video, Long Form: The Town Monster

The city's most prolific rock band in 2010 produced a 20-minute animated Christmas special that frankly had nothing to do with Christmas but was indeed pretty special. The story follows the three-member band as they struggle to find an audience, meet Prince and fight a fire-breathing dragon, all while looking very "Daria"- and "South Park"-esque. Perhaps the best part, though, is a short, angry song about the tribulations of pizza delivery: "I don't mean to be a dick/ but I know where you can shove that breadstick."
