Very funny
4 April 2005 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

'Bambi Meets Godzilla' is almost two minutes filled with smiles and laughs. We start with the opening credits rolling on our screen while we see Bambi eating and simply standing there. The credits themselves are pretty funny. Then Bambi meets Godzilla, again, funny. We end with some written words and you will laugh once more.

This little animated film, in black and white, shows how easy it is to make an entertaining piece of work. Although there is a good chance you expect the events shown on the screen it is the timing that makes it funnier than it might be. The music plays a part as well. A hilarious comedy short created by Marv Newland (the credits tell you this and more).
