Nice cartoon!
7 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film from The National Film Board of Canadian is very nice cartoon, simply animated, and incorporated with footage of REAL log drivers. It what you would expect from a cartoon in the simplest of kinds, not too long, not too annoying, just nice and happy to watch. Very simple and nice. It's only under two minutes, which is just fine. So you watch it over and over again if you'd like, because it is such a nice little cartoon. I like the sketchy/cartoon/unrealistic look of it, which really illustrates the old-time spirit of the song and it lyrics, a kind of spirit not really captured in most modern animation these days. It rank right up there with other NFB films like "The Cat Came Back" and "Neighbors" and is a little slice of Canadian life as well!
