I wish that more people got to see the animated shorts
30 January 2016 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Nedeljko Dragić's "Tup Tup" comes from Zagreb Film, so you know that it's going to have a weird side. Sure enough, this is one of the wackiest, most bizarre cartoons out there. In the process of trying to get some sleep, a man experiences a mixture of sights and sounds. That's as well as I can explain the plot. It's clear that a lot of animators - especially those working for Zagreb Film - take pleasure in the opportunities that animation offers. They like to come up with the most surreal images, as opposed to the more lifelike cartoons to which people in the west are accustomed.

Basically, cartoons don't need to be fancy or refined. After all, animation is simply another kind of filmmaking. "Tup Tup" is an enjoyable cartoon, although I should note that it's not for little children.
