Storyline

The Fudgets are like many families. George Fudget is the household breadwinner. His wife Irene takes his money, pays the bills, puts the remainder into their savings account, and sometimes takes a dollar here and there for her "cookie jar" savings so that she can on occasion buy those little extras for herself, her weakness being hats. George doesn't know about that cookie jar, so he chastises her every time she buys a hat. Sometimes their budget may go up, such as when George gets a new higher paying job. And sometimes they need to spend more than their budget, such as when something unexpectedly breaks and needs to be replaced. They just hope that they can weather any proverbial rainy days, for which they may or may not have enough in their savings. Written by Huggo

Fudget's Budget (1954)

** (out of 4)

Morality tale from UPA about spending over one's family budget. A husband works all day making all the money while the wife goes out shopping and blows the budget when she sees a hat that she likes. The two decide to cut back on things but when the husband gets a raise they both decide to have some fun buying stuff they don't need. I'm a little mixed on this animated short because while there were some good moments I just thought there were too few for the film to really work. A few of the things I liked included the rhyming dialogue, which was often quite funny and it certainly made the film feel at least different. Another thing I liked was the lesson that it was trying to teach about one spending too much money. What I disliked most was the actual look of the film. I know many people can't stand the visual style of UPA films but for the most part it doesn't bother me. Of course, the exception is here because I found the lines in the background just to be rather ugly and I really didn't think it mixed well with how the characters were drawn.
