John and Faith Hubley's Herb Albert and the Tijuana Brass Double Feature was a pretty humorously entertaining Oscar-winning animated short
30 March 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

Just watched this Oscar-winning John and Faith Hubley-written and produced animated short distributed by Paramount on YouTube as linked from Cartoon Brew. The title's meaning is that two Herb Albert selections-"Spanish Flea" and "Tijuana Taxi"-are illustrated in animated form in their entirety. "Spanish Flea" has the title character annoying a donkey, chicken, a gangster and his girlfriend and other people at a hotel party. "Tijuana Taxi" has the driver trying to get his passengers to the plane on time. Both segments have compellingly humorous abstract line drawings set to the beat of the wonderful music. Don't want to say anymore except I highly recommend Herb Albert and the Tijuana Brass Double Feature.
