Walking: A Base 327 Short is the ninth episode of the Base 327 series. In it, Rico learns how to "walk" instead of "glide", and teaches Fox and the other clones how to do it. In early November 2010, Taylor came up with a simple walk cycle that was easy to animate and would be perfect for the series' 8 fps animation. Since the walk cycle was going to be used in all the episodes from then on, the creators decided it would be best to make a short explaining why the characters start "walking" instead of "gliding" over the studs, as they had done in previous episodes. This film was released on November 11, 2010.
