Ed Koch isn't the only familiar face immortalized in clay here.
20 November 2001 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This short won the Academy Award for Animated Short and probably deserved to win. It shows an Ed Koch figure taking the viewer on a somewhat bizarre, often funny, tour of New York, peppered with familiar faces all done in clay and to the tune, "New York, New York". Glad to see it still available on World's Greatest Animation (excellent compilation-I recommend it highly). Most recommended.
