Would never be confused with Barney!

This short is beautifully realized, with excellent animation and good production values. Sort of a fairy tale, but not a traditional one. Sort of Gary Larson meets the Brothers Grimm. I thought it was marvelous! Well worth the trouble to track down. Recommended.
