Winsor McCay's last animated film, the 1921 classic “The Flying House – Dream of the Rarebit Fiend” follows a woman's dream about escaping foreclosure, taking to the skies with her husband – using their own house as a vehicle!
In 2011, Bill Plympton's studio remastered the neglected film, digitally cleaning each frame of damaged footage. By adding color, voices, and a new score, Bill hopes that a fresh take on the classic will bring the genius of Winsor McCay to the attention of a new generation of animation fans.

it’s wonderful to see what one man, who doesn’t get the recognition he deserves, was able to create. The Flying House is a short that remains timely while standing the test of time and should be viewed by anyone with an appreciation of Animation as not just a medium but an art form.

Bill Plympton's restoration of The Flying House labors to preserve a piece of animation history and makes for an interesting observation for diehard art enthusiasts and historians.
