Very good summary of an all too neglected cartoon style

George Pal's Puppetoons are entirely too rarely seen these days. His brand of stop-motion animation is simply wonderful and this film gives an all too brief look at some of his fantastic work.

A framing device is used to showcase eight of his shorts, including Tubby the Tuba, John Henry and the Inky Poo and Tulips Shall Grow, all nominated for Academy Awards. The shorts are marvelous and make wonderful use of music in connection with the animation, particularly Tubby the Tuba and Jasper in a Jam. More of Pal's Puppetoon shorts should be in print. The detail work is inspired! Hunt up a copy of this. You won't be sorry. If and when I get a DVD player, this is at the top of my list of purchases first. Most recommended.

Edit: This has recently (November 2013) been released on a Blu-Ray two-disc set which includes most, possibly all, of the extras from the DVD and much more additional material. The Blu-Ray is excellent and well worth getting. The Blu-Ray has a limited run of 3000 copies.
