moth-ematics
18 December 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

One of the lesser known Looney Tunes cartoons - it only became available on DVD this year - Bob Clampett's "Eatin' on the Cuff or The Moth Who Came to Dinner" really surprised me. It features a live action piano player telling the story of a moth who falls for a honeybee, but then a black widow tries to steal him.

While the story is pretty sedate, you can't deny how cool the animation is. Obviously, we get to see the moth eat people's clothes (even giving a fox scarf a most embarrassing look). But the black widow assumes a Veronica Lake look in one scene, and the honeybee goes all WWII on the black widow. True, this short may look soft compared to Clampett's other work (e.g., "The Great Piggy Bank Robbery"). More than anything, I like how they tried all these different ideas in their cartoons. Worth seeing.
