One of the best Claymation cartoons I've seen
16 September 2000 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is an absolutely marvellous animated short, with the most unusual cast of characters that I've seen in quite some time. It's also about as apt an example of the old line by Robert Burns, "The best laid plans of mice and men..." . The short is quite bittersweet in its ending. Very much worth more than one viewing. Most highly recommended.
