Jimmy The C is a 1977 animated short, directed by Jimmy Picker and co-produced by Picker (going by James), Robert Grossman and Craig Whitaker. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Animated Short Film.[1][2][3] The film was preserved by the Academy Film Archive in 2009.[4]

Plot[edit]

The three-minute film features a clay-animated Jimmy Carter (who was U.S. President at the time) singing Georgia on My Mind, referencing his birth state. He is accompanied by a choir of Mr. Peanut lookalikes, and gazes at the moon at night. Ray Charles' rendition of the song is used on the soundtrack.[5][6][7][8]
