Classic Cartoon Award Winner
10 May 2001 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

Tiny MUNRO - who is only four - has his life profoundly changed when he is sent a draft notice by the Army.

Jules Feiffer's parable about the dangers of a mindless military mentality is accurately presented in this funny little film. The limited animation format is perfectly suited to bringing Feiffer's drawings to life. Howard Morris narrates & voices the various grown-ups.

Winner of the 1960 Oscar for Best Animated Short.
