Visually nice, this looks like a kinder, gentler variation of Tulips Shall Grow

Author: Robert Reynolds ( from Tucson AZ
15 July 2005

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This George Pal Puppetoon is somewhat similar to Tulips Shall Grow, albeit a good deal more whimsical in tone than the later short was. Some of the figures used in Rhythm look like figures Pal used a couple of years later in Tulips without much modification. The next paragraph contains mild spoilers.

This short is visually quite nice and has a playful feel much of the time. Boy meets girl, boy fouls up, boy loses girl, boy gets punishment detail, a war starts and boy saves the day, boy gets girl. The ending on this is a bit unusual.

This short was nominated for the Academy Award for Animated Short and is well worth seeing. Recommended.
