Another classic short
3 May 2002 | by (Streeb-Greebling Acres, London) – See all my reviews

This time round Norman McLaren literally does what the title says, to a fast paced boogie woogie tune he intertwines the movement on screen and the rhythm of the soundtrack, giving us a Boogie Doodle. Similar in its concept to "Lines Horizontal" and "Lines Vertical", it may be short but you won't want to blink
