One of the best shorts done by John and Faith Hubley
John and Faith Hubley were among the more successful independent animation studios both artistically and commercially. While some of their work is less successful, it's all worth watch and invariably at least interesting. This short, nominated for an Academy Award (which, were it not for the absolutely brilliant short Closed Mondays, I suspect it would have won in a walk) this is an incredible piece of work. The selection of Maureen Stapledon and Dizzy Gillespie to do the voices was one of a myriad of touches large and small that make this an excellent animated short. Attention to detail, music, backgrouds-it's all first-rate. Most wholeheartedly recommended.
