I can tell Jones was in a sadistic mood - but the cartoon he produced with it is great!
21 December 2003 | by (Karachi, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

This is a cartoon that makes you really sorry for that poor hotheaded Pa Bear. After that humiliating defeat at cards, the animators just won't let him hibernate. The dialogue is minimal after the story kicks off, but the writing is fantastic. There are just so many ways that the bear's attempts to sleep are thwarted repeatedly, and they're all funny. You really feel sorry for the guy, no matter how much he yelled at his family. The guy's got some problems. The expressions of the frustrated ursine are great, and actions speak much, much louder than words. Those bloodshot eyes just get redder and redder until ... can't give that away. The ending's great. A really funny cartoon, well worth your precious time.
