Loved watching Sundae in New York again after such a long time...
21 June 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

I just watched this Oscar-winning animated short on YouTube. It has a clay-figure resembling then-New York Mayor Ed Koch singing his own version of "Theme from New York, New York" while various celebrities and city landmarks also made of clay are jump-cut during the whole thing that lasts little more than 3 minutes. The person who voices the "Mayor", Scott Record, also does Rodney Dangerfield and Groucho Marx here. Another celebrity I recognized was Alfred E. Newman! And, of course, there's The Chairman of the Board himself, Frank Sinatra, to wink at us at the end. Loved when I first saw this Jimmy Picker short on HBO some 25 years ago and still love it now! Well worth a look for fans of animation and all things Oscar.
