Trivia

The little girl's dreamland seems to be full of underwear: as the calico knight sets off on his quest, birds are seen nesting in the cups of a brassiere; the "bridge" across the stream is a corset; and the "castle" in which the Calico Dragon lives is a "union suit." See more »

Beautiful artwork and backgrounds, if occasionally too cute for words.
31 January 2001 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This cartoon's use of color and background detail is excellent. Sometimes, the story and the action is just too cute for my tastes, but it more than makes up for this visually. The dragon is great! Nominated for an Academy Award for Animated Short, this runs on Cartoon Network occasionally and, when TCM does its annual "Salute to the Oscars" in March, this has been used as filler between features in years past as have other shorts, both animated and live-action. Recommended.
