A short movie that will stay with you for a long time

When the Lurker was wee and would watch almost anything I stumbled across this really fantastic short on HBO. They used to do this sort of great stuff all the time. It is a wonder it was made at all. Anyway it is a Ray Bradbury short story made into a movie about a planet that rains almost constantly. A young girl believes it will be sunny and is treated rather poorly. As a kid who was always small with a big mouth and was beat up a lot this movie meant something very special to me. I know the quality is kind of poor but it really is a nice movie. I also love the sound effects for the futuristic equipment. One of them is the sound effect of Pac-Man dying. 
Here is the first part.
