A talent agent on an African safari discovers Nelly, a singing giraffe, and brings her to America to be a famous performer. But with fame comes loneliness, and Nelly longs for male companionship. When her attentions to a male giraffe result in him leaving his family, Nelly becomes publically scorned as a "home-wrecker", and her fame is lost.

Yes, you can find 'Nelly' on DVD...!!!
30 May 2008 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

For those of us who are die-hard fans of this delightful and politically incorrect cartoon (Nelly desecrates an American home an then attempts to commit suicide) here's the DVD where you can find it at last: 'Warner Brothers Home Entertainment Academy Awards Animation Collection - 15 Winners, 26 Nominees', along with some other -almost- forgotten gems, such as 'The High Note', 'The Dot and the Line' and the chilling 'Peace on Earth'. Most of the transfers are OK, yet some suffer from technical problems like the use of non-anamorphic widescreen for a few cartoons filmed in Cinemascope, even if the box says they are anamorphic transfers (!). The collection covers the years from 1940 to 1965.
