Michael Sporn's version of William Steig's Doctor DeSoto was a nice surprise for me
26 December 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this Oscar-nominated Western Woods animated short of William Steig's (you know, the creator of Shrek) children's book directed and animated by Michael Sporn on YouTube as linked from the Cartoon Brew site. This is the story of a dentist mouse title character who treats all animals, well except dangerous ones. But when a fox comes by with a toothache, DeSoto and his wife decide to risk it...This was quite charming with the British humor especially when they solve their dilemma of what to do when the fox is cured. The score by Ernest Troost was an added treat for me. And the line animation by Sporn was just the icing on the cake. So on that note, I highly recommend Doctor DeSoto for anyone interested in these animation rarities.
