Surreal, quite unusual and not at all typical of what Warner Brothers was doing at the time.

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),
it can be visually arresting. IT is most definitely an acquired taste!
tastes in animation cut across a pretty broad range and even I thought it
bit odd. Not for every taste, but worth a look. If your idea of
begins and ends with Bugs and/or Mickey and the like, you may not like
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
