An excellent animated short... a must-see for animation fans
6 July 1999 | by (Santa Rosa) – See all my reviews

A Tex Avery style wolf tries to keep his office job in the face of mechanical modernization. The short is a blend of traditional cel animation and computer wire-frame animation. A must-see for fans of animation in general and an excellent stylistic tribute to the influence of Tex.
