Storyline

Two Native Americans; one is hunting, another fishing. Together, they shake a tree and a bounty of fruit falls. They gorge on the bounty, growing huge. They are tempted by a lovely woman; she drops the key to a door, which, when opened, reveals a live-action black-and-yellow montage of modern life (airplanes, traffic jams, etc.). A dispute between the two leads to another montage, this time scenes of war. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Surreal, quite unusual and not at all typical of what Warner Brothers was doing at the time.
2 December 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is an animated short produced by an independent studio, not by Warner Brothers itself. Somehow, Warner Brothers acquired distribution rights to this odd little bit of film, which someone, told that it was, "a cartoon" (and likely without even watching it first), just had it inserted in the studio's regular short animation package. What reaction theaters and audiences had when they expected a Warner Brothers cartoon and saw this instead, I can only imagine. This is 180 degrees opposite what the studio was turning out at the time. It would, however, have fit perfectly as a lead-in for Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey. At times, it becomes obvious and it's a bit of experimentation that doesn't work very well in spots, as it bogs down (no small feat for a sex to seven minute short), but it can be visually arresting. IT is most definitely an acquired taste! My tastes in animation cut across a pretty broad range and even I thought it a bit odd. Not for every taste, but worth a look. If your idea of animation begins and ends with Bugs and/or Mickey and the like, you may not like this. But if you like the Hubleys, Bill Plympton and some of the folks further out in left field, this may suit you quite well. Recommended with those caveats.
