Clever, almost cute, cartoon that is almost a textbook example of UPA's work

10/10
Author: Robert Reynolds (minniemato@hotmail.com) from Tucson AZ
17 October 2001

This short, one of the three UPA shorts nominated for an Academy Award (a clean sweep for UPA that year), is almost the prototypical short for UPA: Limited animation combined with a clever, interesting idea that is fleshed out with a good script that uses the strengths of the animation style to best advantage for the concept. The idea here is simple: the main character has taken up jaywalkng as a hobby and it quickly becomes manic, almost obsessive, behavior. The cartoon is beautifully executed and is well worth getting a hold of for anyone who enjoys animation. Recommended.
