A Rare Strange One
28 June 2001 | by (Burbank, CA) – See all my reviews

This cartoon has never been televised to my knowledge. The reason is because it is in black and white. It is a strange one, though. It starts and ends with live-action footage of a piano player who sings the story of a moth who is late for his wedding to a bee. He is sidetracted by a black widow spider who tries to seduce him. The characterizations aren't as strong as in Clampett's other, more well known, cartoons. The strong point of this cartoon is the animation, though. It is incredibly loose and distorted. It looks as though the entire cartoon were animated by the great Rod Scribner. It is worth seeing just for this, if you can find a copy of it.
