Chances are, wouldn't have come up with this pairing: That prim and proper nanny, Mary Poppins, and the evil Penguin, from Batman. But they're the couple at the heart of a new animated short produced by students at the University of Colorado Denver.

Ryan Warner spoke with Professor Howard Cook, who heads UCD's Digital Animation Center.
