I agree, humour is a very difficult subject to portray in animation (or any type of film-making) and that's why a lot animators are more drawn to dark subjects, horror, gore, violence, gross-out, etc. I love Aardman Studios because they are the absolute masters in the humour genre. From Morph to Shaun the Sheep, they really know how to make me laugh. That's also why my favourite Laika Studio production is "Missing Link".

It's a lot easier to make people cry than it is to make them laugh, and that's why, for me, humour is the Higher Art.

Keep trying to make people laugh!
