A wonderful lark!
25 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was extraordinarily funny, visually pleasing, and creative. Yes, Mel Blanc DOES do the voice characterizations and is credited at the beginning. And the narration is nothing short of brilliant, because it was penned by the Emperor of Puns, Ogden Nash. I got to see a live performance of Carnival of the Animals when I was in elementary school and the narrator was the great Robert Klein. Watching the amusing animated short brought back great memories. I recommend a terrific book (may be necessary to go to one of the out-of-print booksellers), A GOLDEN TRASHERY OF OGDEN NASHERY. Anyhow, seek out a copy of this cute animated short on VHS. I'll bet it can be found on one of the compilation DVDs by now, too.
