Nice animation, decent production values but not much appeal for anyone over age 12.
FAMOUS FRED seems to be, in some ways, the life of Elvis in cat form! Fred is a cat who can sing and charm the ladies like The King and over time, he puts on weight and lets himself go...like The King. Aside from these parallels and some nice animation, there wasn't much about this British cartoon that appealed to me. Like ROCKADOODLE, this film seemed to be aimed just at the kids and would have extremely limited appeal to adults. In fact, it was a real chore for me to watch it. So why did I do this? Well, I have recently begun watching as many of the recent Academy Award winners in the category of Best Animated Short Film and this one was nominated for the Oscar in 1998.
