The design studio n9ve, based in Italy, has created two cool short videos featuring animated versions of the alphabet. Even Homer Simpson gets a shoutout. (Love the French music track and sound effects!)

Here's the design studio's description of one of the videos:

The Alphabet 2- a horn book video experiment - is a developmental spelling - video where each character visually represents the meaning of the word itself. Playing with different techniques and materials into little and big spaces, but always focusing on Helvetica font's proportions. A collection of words in a delightful spelling-video.

The ABCs animated in words:

The studio also posted behind-the-scene photos of how they created the first video.
