This short fires visuals at the viewer rapidly from the beginning
This short, nominated for an Academy Award, is a marvelous example of just how far one can take stop-motion Claymation. The visuals come at you quite fast and furious over what is a very brief cartoon and it's one of Will Vinton's best efforts. Fortunately, it's available (along with quite a few other shorts) on the World's Greatest Animation and is most certainly worth having. Now, if only someone would come along and put together a similar compilation of animated shorts released since 1991, the year after the release date of the most recent release on WGA, that would be most welcome. Most recommended.
