Beautiful
9 January 2003 | by (Your Critic of Critics) – See all my reviews

Directed by Chuck Jones, this is a beautiful cartoon of a tiny little boy. Who stays home alone washing the dishes as his father works. Fate has it that he falls down to the water and begins to drown. However, a his little bird friend saves him but the father thinks the bird attacked him. And that's where the conflict begins.

This cartoon is kind of Disney-ish but it works and it's a great short!
